What is ICS?
It's a once in a life time opportunity to volunteer overseas, have a lasting impact in developing countries, gain new skills, meet incredible people and use your experiences to inspire a new generation of active citizens. What's more... It's funded by the UK government so, although we ask volunteers to fundraise, it's open to all and no one will be excluded on cost. Sounds good? Apply now.
As a Progressio ICS volunteer you will be part of a team of UK and local volunteers, and will work alongside a local partner organisation adding value to their ongoing work. Your project will focus on either HIV and AIDS, sustainable environment or effective governance. The placements have a duration of 10-12 weeks and are based in El Salvador, Honduras, Malawi, Nicaragua or Zimbabwe.
If you are aged 23+ with the ability to lead a diverse group of young adults, you can apply to be a team leader.
ICS is funded by the Department for International Development (DFID)and is run by a consortium of charities, led by VSO in partnership with Progressio, International Service, Lattitude, Raleigh, Restless Development, Skillshare International, Tearfund, Challenges Wordwide and Balloon Ventures. You can read more about the ICS partners, and the countries and focus of their ICS programme, on the ICS website.
