We offer young people in the UK the chance to change their life - and many other's - forever. With a presence in 18 countries worldwide, we work with local volunteers to support community projects that provide education, healthcare, employment and more to those who need it most.
The programme is funded by the UK Government and led by leading international volunteer unit VSO, in partnership with a hand-picked group of respected development organisations. Each of these is on hand to offer structured support and training to help and guide you before, during and after your overseas placement.
Whilst we cannot guarantee your first choice of location, wherever you go our team will place you on a project that can impact your life and the lives of the people in the community you work in for the better.
ICS is a once in a lifetime opportunity to change your world.
