ICYE UK (Inter Cultural Youth Exchange

Volunteer placements in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Bursaries Available.

Volunteer with ICYE, and get the chance to eat, drink and sleep another culture - all whilst making a real difference to your hosting community.

ICYE UK is currently recruiting enthusiastic volunteers to work with local NGOs in Africa, Asia and Latin America for 6 to 12 months. Projects are varied and include those which support people with HIV and AIDS, human and women's rights projects, education, environmental conservation groups, projects supporting street children, youth work and much more. We pride ourselves on being able to match volunteers to projects based on their project preferences, skills and interests.

Hurry hurry! Final places in Kenya, India, Ecuador and Honduras! (6 and 12 months). There are all sorts of projects you can get involved in - from sports and youth work to environmental conservation, teaching and women's rights. Contact us now to find out more.

Only got 4 weeks to spare? We're still recruiting volunteers for our Morocco Summer Programme to teach English to young people at summer schools. The deadline for applications is 20th May. You can get in touch today for more information.

No matter where you choose to volunteer, ICYE UK offer an all-inclusive programme fee. This includes return flights, accommodation and food, travel costs to and from project, health insurance, visas, language lessons, monthly pocket money, training and ongoing personal support. We also provide extensive fundraising support, as well as an opportunity to apply for a £1500 bursary. The next bursary deadline is June 1st 2013, although we recommend applying sooner to secure a placement.

You can also book a place for the next free ICYE UK Information day. It will be held at our office in Kilburn, North London, on:

Saturday 1st June (12-4.30pm)
