Interested in volunteering overseas on an exchange programme? Read on for more details:


Would you like to shake up your life in 2006? Want to try living in a developing country, working with people from a different culture or contributing to community work? If so, VSO’s Global Xchange could be for you.

Global Xchange is an exchange programme for 18-25 year olds. Participants from the UK are paired-up with a counterpart from a developing country. Together they make a practical contribution to communities and share their skills and knowledge.

Teams of 18, nine from the UK and nine from a developing country, live together for three months in the UK. They then move to the developing country for three months. Participants work on community projects such as refugee mentoring programmes, environmental regeneration, at centres for people with multiple disabilities, with independent living schemes for people with learning disabilities, and at youth and children’s projects.

Global Xchange is recruiting for exchanges in September 2006 and March 2007. For more information and to apply visit www.globalxchange.org.uk or call 020 8780 7500.
