CC International serves your volunteer team

so your team can focus directly on the needs of the community.  


Alternative break volunteers invest their personal time and resources to provide support to projects that result in healthy people and communities. CC International respects that commitment. We do extensive planning so you can "hit the ground running" when you arrive at your CC International Alternative Break Project. We take care of food, lodging, tools, project supplies, safety equipment, permits, and all project coordination.

We have a variety of projects addressing issues such as
and early childhood education, that need volunteers.

We are proud to have been received awards and recognition
 from Newman's Own Foundation, the American Red Cross, Chactawhatchee Basin Alliance, the State of Mississippi, and the City of Atlanta, to name a few.

Our international projects have been developed specifically to meet the requirements of university based alternative breaks. Unlike many international service programs that place volunteers across the globe, CC International only sends volunteers to programs that have been personally inspected
and selected by CC International staff.


We always provide safe and comfortable group housing and

well supervised projects for your team. All international projects include a full time bilingual project coordinator that stays with your team throughout your project.


CC International has worked with over 70 colleges and universities and thousands of student volunteers. We know what universities need, we carry the insurance required by many universities, and we know what your team needs to have a successful and fulfilling alternative break experience.

We are very excited about our volunteer facility and terrific projects in Biloxi, Mississippi.

The CC International Biloxi Volunteer Facility is located on an 89 acre site on the north shore of the Bay of Biloxi. The 10 acres adjacent to the shore line is considered the Main Camp area the remaining 79 acres are heavily wooded with trails.

There is plenty of meeting space, wifi, a baseball field, basketball courts, volleyball, other recreational facilities and a fully equipped dining hall.  We need lots of volunteers for projects that include environmental restoration, early childhood education,
and support for organizations addressing hunger and homelessness in adjascent communities.

Your team can focus their efforts on a particular issue area or work on a couple of different projects throughout the week.
Each day volunteers will be served breakfast and make their own brown bag lunch before departing to their project site. Hot and nutritious dinner will be served each evening. Vegetarian options are available for each meal, refrigerator space is available to store personal food for those with special dietary needs. In order to minimize our environmental footprint we ask all volunteers to bring their own plate, bowl, cup and utensils.

We need your volunteer team is Biloxi this winter or spring so come on down!!

(Biloxi is a great place for winter break because the Gulf Coast climate is great for outdoor projects in December and January.)


Our projects in Puerto Rico need volunteers during winter or spring breaks!
(NOTE: Puerto Rico is a territory of the USA and volunteers do not need passports to enter.)
