How would you like the chance to improve the lives of some of the poorest people in the world?
If you are aged 18 - 25, Raleigh International Citizen Service (ICS) can give you just that. International Citizen Service is funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) and run by some of the most respected names in international volunteering.
You will travel for ten weeks to Nicaragua, Tanzania or India (from summer 2013 onwards) and:
ICS involves an overseas placement where you will work alongside local volunteers, tackling issues around education, health, livelihoods, strengthening civil society and the environment. Activities will cover:
In addition to the overseas project, you will have to fundraise for the trip, attend compulsory training beforehand and a debriefing session on your return. Also, crucially, you will be expected to use what you have learnt to help on a more local level, by taking part in UK community action.
Raleigh ICS will open your eyes to the world and allow you to gain a unique perspective on life in another country. We hope that on coming home, you will feel a renewed passion for community involvement and international development, and continue to make a difference everywhere you can.
Raleigh has been organising volunteer programmes abroad since 1984 - it's what we do. We offer a totally immersive experience. You'll be living right in the heart of the community and really learning about another way of life.
We helped set up a new British Standard for the safe management of overseas ventures, and our teams both in country and at our head office in the UK are some of the most experienced around.
