International Citizen Service (ICS) is a UK Government funded programme providing volunteer placements to 18-25 year olds and Team Leader placements to 23-35 year olds. ICS volunteers in Nigeria help identify viable businesses along the cocoa value chain, as well as supporting young people and women to engage with local co-operative organisations. Working with community volunteers, they also help create inclusive spaces for children.


Conditions: Open to 18-25 year olds (23-35 year olds for team leaders), living in the UK OR partner countries, committed to fundraising £800.

Cost: The program is highly subsidised by DFID, the Department for International Development, including travel abroad, accommodation and an allowance for living costs. Volunteers are asked to fundraise £800.
