We receive ICYE volunteers through our partner organisations of the ICYE Federation (see icye.org). There are ICYE organisations in about 40 countries in different parts of the world. On the website of the ICYE Federation, you can find the contact information the ICYE organisations around the world. Please see if there is an ICYE organisation in the country you live in. If there is, please contact them for further information.
Please see if we currently have open positions for European Solidarity Corps volunteering. On the same page, you can application instructions as well as the application form.
For both ICYE and European Solidarity Corps volunteering, the minimum age is 18 years. For European Solidarity Corps periods in Finland, the maximum age is 30 years, whereas in the ICYE programme the upper age limit is flexible.
You do not need any knowledge of the Finnish language prior to the volunteering period. Your volunteering period will offer you an excellent chance to learn it. 😊
