Volunteer with ICYE next year in Ghana, Mexico, or New Zealand, for example – apply soon!

Are you wishing to volunteer abroad next year? Good news, you still have time to apply for the January-February 2024 departure of the International Cultural Youth Exchange program!

There are places available in Ecuador (6 months only), the Philippines, Ghana, Indonesia, Morocco, Mexico, Peru (6 months only), Tanzania, Thailand, New Zealand and the Philippines.

The ICYE program gives you the opportunity to volunteer in the local community, immerse yourself in everyday life abroad, and develop your skills. The aim is a shared learning experience, where your worldview expands and new faces become friends.

ICYE volunteers are hosted by organisations in many sectors. Find volunteering opportunities on the ICYE network’s search engine (icye.org), where you can browse volunteering opportunities by country and work theme, including:

  • education
  • environment
  • health
  • human rights
  • office work
  • socially excluded groups
  • sport/culture

You will get training for your volunteering experience. There is a participation fee for the program. Besides training, the fee includes accommodation, daily meals, and insurance, for example.

Application instructions and the application form

“I volunteer at a camp centre and have done a lot of maintenance and activities for children and young people. The most rewarding part has definitely been watching the children learn new skills and find their inner courage. I would recommend international volunteering to anyone who is interested, as you get a completely different experience of cultures and people.” These greetings Niilo sent us from New Zealand this season. If you would like to experience ICYE volunteering next season, apply now!

We will fill positions as and when we find suitable applicants, and the closing date for applications is 1 September 2024.
