Since our inception in 1923 passionate and committed volunteers have been at the core of CCWA’s efforts to create a community of globally minded citizens. Volunteers from all across northeast Ohio have dedicated countless hours to ensuring that our international visitors feel a warm, Midwest welcome when they step foot in Cleveland. Whether hosting foreign leaders for dinner or giving a professional presentation about their work, the importance of volunteers cannot be understated. In FY 2012 CCWA hosted 238 international leaders and volunteers generously gave over 155,000 hours of service!

Immediate Opportunity: Host a Student-Leader from Kosovo!
What is the Kosovo Youth Exchange Program? KYEP is an exchange program for accomplished high school students from Kosovo. Magnificat High School and Mayfield High School hosted three KYEP students during the 2011-12 academic year. These students excelled academically, made lasting friendships, and participated in extracurricular activities and community service. Current KYEP students and hosts agree that the experience of living together has been the most important and most rewarding part of the KYEP experience.
How can you get involved? Join KYEP next year! Families who are interested in other cultures, open to new experiences, and interested in making a lifelong friend should apply.
