Are you 18 – 25? Tearfund is offering you a chance to spend 10 weeks volunteering in Africa or South America with the Department for International Development (DFID) funded International Citizen Service (ICS). This is an amazing opportunity to experience another culture, challenge yourself and develop your potential while working on genuine development projects that will have a lasting impact.
And you won’t be alone – you’ll be part of a group from the UK and once you arrive in country, you’ll be teaming up with other ICS volunteers from the country you’re based in. This is a great opportunity to learn from each other and share ideas to create a lasting impact.
When you return home to the UK, we will support you to carry out a project to share what you’ve learnt and to encourage others to take action against poverty.
Are you over 23 (there’s no age limit!)? We’re looking for individuals who would love the challenge of leading an ICS team. And if you’d like to be a long-term leader, there’s an option to stay for up to six months.
“I had an amazing time working with and learning from the volunteers in country and building relationships with the partners to contribute to the wonderful work they do. It was a privilege to be a part of such a great project that taught me so much about loving and serving those around me.” – Beth Loaker
