VSO is the world’s leading international development organization whose vision is “A World without poverty”. Our approach to fighting poverty is through the lasting power of volunteering. VSO currently works in 24 countries across Africa, Asia and The Pacific.
The International Citizen Service (ICS) is a volunteering programme for 18-25 year olds, led by VSO and funded by the UK Government. ICS brings together young people from the UK and developing countries to volunteer in rural communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America for a period of 10 – 12 weeks. Presently, ICS projects in Nigeria center on Education and Livelihoods. Nigerian volunteers (In country Volunteers) work side-by-side with UK volunteers in these communities, staying with host families in the local community.
ICS is not a holiday. It is demanding but hugely rewarding. It is a great opportunity for personal development, a stepping-stone to future careers and a chance to make your world a better place.
VSO Nigeria is currently looking for motivated and passionate candidates to be a part of the next cycle of the ICS programme, which will run from September to December, 2018. If you believe you have the ambition to make a difference and meet all the above criteria, please proceed to the next page to begin your application process.
Application closes on Friday 3rd August, 2018. However, VSO reserves the right to close this opportunity early if we receive a sufficient number of applications. Please click on the link to apply.
