About Raleigh International
Raleigh International creates lasting change youth. We are a sustainable development charity that believes that when local communities and young people work side by side to create positive change, it empowers them. And it’s the energy and motivation of empowered people that creates lasting change.
One of our programmes is International Citizen Service (ICS). ICS is a development programme that brings together young people from the UK and developing countries to volunteer in some of the poorest communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Raleigh ICS Volunteer
Should there be more to life?
Something more special? Something to make you feel like you are actually making a difference? Something to take you places you’ve never been before?
Are you 18-25 and a UK citizen or an EU citizen who has lived in the UK for 12 months?
Great! Volunteer with Raleigh ICS!
ICS is a volunteering programme which is funded by the UK government. This means your flights, visas, vaccines, training, food, accommodation and travel are all covered.
We deliver ICS in Nepal, Tanzania and Nicaragua, and are currently looking for volunteers for 12 weeks next spring.
What could I be doing?
On a Raleigh ICS placement, you could be working on one of two areas:
