We have been closely monitoring the situation around the world, and have been carefully planning the next steps for our summer missions in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

In order to protect everyone’s health and safety and due to travel advisories, we have unfortunately needed to cancel all of our international missions. However, in order to still give our students a mission experience, we have created a new mission, which is titled “Be the Light” (more information below).

Are you interested in having a CCO™ mission come to your city, country or parish? Click here to find out how.



We are not able to give an answer until we have received three completed references for you. Once we have all of your references it can be anywhere from one day to a few weeks before you know if you are accepted. It will take longer to receive an answer during the month of December and the weeks surrounding the application deadline.

If you are accepted you will be emailed an acceptance package with more information. To secure your spot on the team, you will need to sign and return the mission release forms, and submit your non-refundable deposit.

The deposit can range anywhere from $100 to $500, depending on the total cost of the mission.

Yes, but you are only given a limited amount of time to submit your mission deposit. If you can raise the cost of the deposit, and submit it to CCO™ within a week of your acceptance, great!

The cost of a mission can be covered through personal payments, donations from others or some combination of the two. Upon acceptance you will receive a payment timeline and are expected to meet financial deadlines at checkpoints leading up to the beginning of the mission project. You are welcome to pay for the mission out of your own funds but we do encourage fundraising and provide tools to be able to do so.

No. However, if you have a surplus of funds after mission, those excess funds can be used to reimburse mission related expenses. This expenses could include things like transportation to the orientation city, vaccines, materials for thank you cards, etc.

Non-students are allowed to apply for CCO™ mission trips. However, since our organization’s primary work is with university students, students will have priority in trip placements. As well, as our missions are for university-aged young adults, applicants under the age of 30 will be considered.
