Volunteering overseas

Volunteering overseas with ICS is a life-changing experience.

You'll spend 10-12 weeks supporting a development project overseas as part of a team of British and local volunteers. 

You will live and work side-by-side with local volunteers and your host family. 

ICS is not a holiday. Work can be hard and days long. But it is a great opportunity to learn and develop whilst contributing towards meaningful projects aimed at tackling the root causes of poverty.


Volunteer overseas with ICS - not just another volunteer programme.

A volunteer overseas

As a volunteer overseas, you will be directly contributing towards vital charity work abroad. Expect to work hard. 

However, you will be supported throughout your volunteer journey - through training, fundraising and whilst on placement. Volunteering overseas with ICS is a fantastic opportunity to support charity work whilst also developing yourself personally and professionally.
