Volunteer personal development is a key part of ICS.
Alongside making a difference overseas, we work to build and develop our volunteers.
Volunteers benefit from comprehensive training as part of the programme, they take part in a challenging overseas placement and support work at home. This builds vital transferable skills that contribute towards personal development and finding a job.
In a recent survey of our volunteers:
- 98% say that the experience has been very useful for their professional development
- 99% say the experience has been very useful for their personal development
- 97% keep in touch with their ICS teammates after placement
- 96% would recommend the programme to others
At ICS we are committed to delivering an inclusive programme and will make reasonable adjustments throughout the journey to ensure that all volunteers have a positive experience of international volunteering.
