Program Overview

Program Description:

Brazil has a distinct pulse, a rhythm of its own that you'll feel the moment you arrive. Whether you're playing soccer with the local kids, practicing Portuguese with new friends, or moving to the sounds of a capoeira drum.

With you volunteer with Cross-Cultural Solutions, you'll experience not only the great things Brazil is famous for, but also a side that you never knew existed. By connecting with the local staff and serving others, you'll experience Brazil not as a tourist, but more as a member of the community.

For two decades, CCS volunteers have traveled around the world to work on sustainable service projects. Volunteer in Brazil to help improve education for local children, assist with the care of children, work to empower girls and women through education, assist children or adults with disabilities, support individuals living with HIV/AIDS, or provide education and outreach surrounding important health topics.

Setting Description:
The oldest city in the country and its first capital, Salvador was a major post for the slave trade and is now a thriving center of Afro-Brazilian life. Considered Brazil's most artistic city, Salvador has a lively art scene and its streets are filled with dance and music year-round.
