International volunteering for 18-25 year olds

Volunteer stories

Changing their world for the better.

ICS volunteers are making a difference in some of the world's poorest communities, living and working alongside local people on projects of lasting value.

Volunteers join us at different stages of their lives and with different passions. Yet they all want a challenge and they are united by their determination to make a difference. Typically, they walk away with a broad set of skills that help them to make progress in their personal and professional lives and carry on making a positive contribution to the causes they really care about.

These skills include the ability to negotiate, to motivate, to listen and learn from other cultures, to plan and manage budgets - and so much more. Just read the case studies to see dozens of examples.

Half the world is under 25. We know that with the right opportunity, young people have huge potential to make an impact in their communities. With ICS, you can be part of this experience too – and show yourself and others what you're made of.
