“I have been to Thailand multiple times before coming to COSA, but only as a tourist. What I loved about volunteering at COSA was that I was able to experience Thailand on a more personal and deeper level. I was able to go beneath the superficial layer that people who visit as tourists get to see.” 
- Colette Mahler, 10-week Volunteer, Fall 2014



Christen_Reen_Gig_Peace“Upon recently completing my M.A. in Non-Profit Leadership, I came to COSA with the intention of experiencing and implementing my research on relationship-building for community development. My understanding of this topic has been thus far defined by textbooks and through academic application. However, after participating in an outreach to a hill tribe community and through daily interactions with the girls at COSA, my perspectives have been fully challenged and reconstructed. I feel that I now have a fresh view on development issues that I will take home and carry on through my career.”
