“Challenge Yourself to Change the World”

Mar. 28th 2014

Young people who have volunteered with International Citizen Service recently held a photography exhibition at the Scottish Parliament. The ICS programme helps 18-25 year olds in Scotland volunteer overseas. It also provides the opportunity for young Scots to gain valuable skills, regardless of income, qualifications, disability or work history.

Commenting on the programme, Margaret said:

“The International Citizen Service is an excellent scheme that gives young people in Scotland a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help make a meaningful contribution to fighting poverty overseas.”
