What we stand for

We bring about change in partnership with local communities. We support the development of our young volunteers and we're creating a lasting legacy of active citizenship.

Responsible volunteering

We ensure all our projects are developed with local partners, and strive to make a long-term, sustainable impact.

The power of difference

The most wonderful moments on ICS come when cultures collide: when you learn something unexpected about your counterpart; when you share in the life of your new host family; when your different backgrounds, perspectives and opinions help you come up with the best solution.
