All you need to volunteer with ICS is the ambition to make a difference.
International Citizen Service (ICS) is a UK Government funded programme providing volunteer placements to 18-25 year olds and Team Leader placements to 23-35 year olds.
ICS is a development programme that brings together young people from the UK and developing countries to volunteer in some of the poorest communities in Africa and Asia.
Placements are 10-12 weeks in length.
UK volunteers work side-by-side with local volunteers in developing countries, staying with host families in the local community.
ICS isn't a holiday. It's demanding but hugely rewarding. It's a great opportunity for personal development, a stepping stone to future careers and a chance to make your world a better place.
What is included?
As well as structured training and support, ICS volunteers receive their:
- medical insurance
- food and accommodation
- small allowance during their placement.
