Aims and objectives
International Service has been fighting poverty through volunteering for over 60 years.
We protect and promote the rights of the most marginalised people in developing countries - women, children, disabled people, and people living with HIV/AIDS.
As part of the government-funded International Citizen Service scheme, we are offering young people aged 18-25 the opportunity to volunteer with us for 11 weeks in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Palestine or Bolivia.
We have a wide range of placements, so whatever your passion or interest we have something to suit you. We support our volunteers so that they can contribute their skills and experience in making a difference to the lives of local people.
The scheme is open to everyone, whatever your background, and you don't need any special qualifications or experience. Taking up one of our placements will involve no cost to you, the volunteer, as they are funded through the Department for International Development, so everything from flights to accommodation is covered. We do ask that participants raise some money before their trip, but every support will be given in achieving this.
