About ICS

International Citizen Service 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. ICS makes the most of the unique contribution young people can bring to development – passion, energy and the ability to reach other young people. All of our projects are carefully planned to be sustainable and focussed on long term impact.
