ICYE promotes youth mobility, intercultural learning, and international voluntary service, in 36 countries around the world.ICYE‘s goals are to foster peace and understanding in the world through exchanging our youth.
The Volunteer Centre is a federation member of ICYE Organization, so we are able to send and receive international volunteers. The programme depends on the individual. Your personal abroad experience could be one month up to a year in different social fields. This means that we will be your support system while you volunteer with us. We will support you in finding an accommodation - in our case, we like it more intercultural, meaning that you will stay with a local host family for the duration of your stay! We will try our utmost best to match you with the relevant project.
The Volunteer Centre Youth Club should create an Network of local, national and international Volunteers to improve themselves. Volunteering means experience! Experiential learning enhances personal development! It doesn´t matter where you're from, how old you are or what kind of skills you have. Giving something back to the community and profit from each other.
The VCYC creates genuine partnership and cooperation characterized by mutual give-and-take. This means you can volunteer your time and skills to any of our local partner organization and you get in return more skills, experience and the option to take part in other Volunteer Centre activities, like networking sessions with other volunteers, Museum tours and a lot more!
