50 Stories for 50 Years
Over the past fifty years, more than 8,000 people from Canada and the South have volunteered with Canadian Crossroads International, gaining new perspectives, forming new relationships and acquiring a broader view of the world around them. While volunteer roles have changed with changing needs in the South, Crossroaders across the decades have a lot in common — a desire to deepen their understanding of global issues, to make a contribution and to collaborate with colleagues North and South toward common goals. As part of CCI’s 50th anniversary celebrations, we have collected stories from Crossroaders from our founding in 1958 to present day which illustrate the richness and diversity of the Crossroads experience. We hope you will enjoy reading the following profiles, which are but a small sampling of the literally thousands of individual experiences which make up the fifty year long story of Canadian Crossroads International.
