International volunteering for 18-25 year olds

NCS graduates

If you've done NCS then you're guaranteed an invite to an assessment day, as long as we have places and you're eligible.

With your NCS volunteering experience we're confident that you're an ideal applicant.

If successful, you'll have the chance to build on the skills like teamwork, leadership and communication that you gained from doing NCS. 

Lots of NCS graduates have gone on to do ICS placements and have found it be a great next step. Volunteers like Jake, who said:

Both NCS and ICS have helped tremendously with my personal development. The two programmes have also provided me with fantastic talking points for my CV and have helped me get a job.


You need to be 18 at the time you go overseas, and a UK resident that's been here for at least the last 12 months. You can apply when you're 17, but we won't be able to take your application forward until you're 18. You can see more about eligibility on our apply now page.

We only accept applications a year or less in advance. If you're not yet 17 but you're interested in doing ICS in future, give us your email address and we can send you information closer to the time you can apply.
