Volunteer Internationally with AJLI + Cross-Cultural Solutions
Cross-Cultural Solutions is a nonprofit working to address critical global issues by providing meaningful volunteer service to communities abroad, and contributing responsibly to local economies. As a leader in the field of international volunteer travel for over 20 years, they know that the best approach to International volunteering—the only approach—is one designed by the community.
The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. and Cross-Cultural Solutions have partnered together to offer Junior Leagues and their members the opportunity to volunteer internationally with countless opportunities to connect with and learn from, local people in these global communities. There are three opportunities:
Join the next extraordinary Cross-Cultural Solutions volunteer service opportunity: Rabat, Morocco.
Experience an eye-opening first-hand look into Islam and its beautiful and historic layers while you’re taken on a sensory journey through the warm and welcoming country of Morocco. As an international volunteer, you’ll support dynamic grass-roots initiatives that lend services to the women and children of Morocco’s most vulnerable populations. In addition to volunteering, you’ll explore the many colorful medinas of Morocco, visit ancient ruins, and perhaps take a camel trek through the Sahara Desert!
Our March trip is filled but we’ve scheduled two additional trips to accommodate demand:
- August 20 – 27, 2016
- October 29 – November 5, 2016
