Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
The team at Cross-Continental Solutions believes that cultural understanding and hands-on experience are exceptionally valuable and should be included in everyone's educational or career strategy. Based on that belief, the organization was founded with the goal of making international learning programs more insightful and accessible. Over the past few years, their international intern and volunteer abroad programs were designed to give a cross-cultural learning experience while helping local communities at the same time. By offering affordable fees and flexible programs, the team has made this unique experience far more accessible.
Since mission statements tend to be overly general with vague aspirations, CrossContinental.org recently developed a manifesto with more specific and emotional stories to tell why they exist and what their passion is. As quoted below, their manifesto is filled with inspiration and authenticity and makes a clear declaration of purpose.
CrossContinental's manifesto states:
"Maybe you feel tired of cubical walls and endless corporate politics. Maybe you feel burnt out from classroom education and need some internship credit. Maybe you're lost in life and looking for a purpose.
"Whether you call it a career break, gap year, or cultural adventure, you want to get away and have a life-changing experience. Whether you decide to volunteer, intern, learn a language, or explore a new culture, you want to move beyond the typical hotel tourist experience. But you have fears. You don't know where to start. You may worry about finances, safety, culture shock, or a gap on your resume.
"We can help: rationalize your fears, access resources, understand the experience, meet like-minded adventurers, and get inspired.
"We encourage traveling with a purpose. Make it an important part of your education or career strategy. This is not a gap on your resume; you gain hands-on experience, earn volunteer hours, learn new languages, build global networks, and see a side of you that you never knew before.
"We have a dream. We want to make cross-cultural learning universally accessible. We are a supportive community that gives motivation and preparation.
"No more excuses! Life is too short to live in a bubble. Be the change you want to see in the world."
