Be part of a youth network

What is a youth network?

These are platforms for young people who are enthusiastic about carrying on VSO and ICS development work in their own communities.

The networks are designed and led by young people across the world, who are passionate about being active citizens.

How can I benefit from being part of a youth network?

  • Support from VSO staff and other likeminded young people to take action in your own communities

  • Provide you with access to volunteering opportunities

  • Provide you with access to online training and resources to support your own development

  • Networking with other like-minded young people

How do I get involved?

Sign up for your youth network below and don’t forget to tell your friends about this opportunity too!
