Voluntary work

International Citizen Service (ICS) offers you the chance to use the knowledge and skills from your course to help fight global poverty, whilst also developing valuable skills for employment.  ICS is the UK’s leading global volunteering programme that supports young people from all backgrounds to make a real difference to global poverty. Funded by the Department for International Development, we’re building a generation of global citizens.

Restless Development is the youth-led development agency. We know that young people have the energy, commitment and skills to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
