Are you interested in volunteering overseas, and telling a story about it? Would you like to immerse yourself in another culture, contribute to international development, and make media about the experience?
International Citizen Service (ICS) is the UK’s leading global volunteering programme for people aged 18-25, bringing together young people from different countries to fight poverty. Over the next three years ICS will be sending 7,000 young people from the UK to over 28 of the world’s poorest countries to work alongside national volunteers for 10-12 weeks.
If you’re a recent graduate from a journalism or media course, and 25 or under, then you could apply for one of the upcoming placements, which are provisionally: January – March 2013 and April – June 2013.
