The VSO international citizen service volunteering program is an opportunity for young people to gain valuable skills and experience while bringing about lasting change in communities.
The International Citizen Service (ICS) is a UK Government-funded program providing volunteer placements to 18-25-year-olds, and team leader placements to 23-35-year-olds in a number of countries around the world.
The International Citizen Service (ICS) makes the most of the unique contribution young people can bring to development passion, energy and the ability to reach other young people.
The program is available in livelihoods, health, and education. Every ICS team is made up of volunteers from the country where the project is running and volunteers from the United Kingdom and the European Union. It’s also currently available in Uganda, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia, Bangladesh, and Cambodia.
The VSO international citizen service volunteers work side-by-side with partners from the UK, staying with local families in the community and working on community development projects.
