International Citizen Service (ICS) is a UK Government funded international volunteering programme for 18 – 25-year-olds that takes part in over 20 countries around the world.
Edinburgh based charity Challenges Worldwide have been running an ICS programme since 2014 and the UK Government has tasked us with supporting as many young Scottish people as possible to take part in our programmes overseas.
We would like to run a focus group with approximately 10 young people each are aged 18-25 and a UK Citizen and meet at least two of the following criteria:
- You left education at 16
- You received free school meals while at school
- You attended a secondary school that falls within POLAR Classifications 1 or 2
- You have a household income <£20,000 per annum
- You are in receipt of benefits
If you fit the above criteria, then we would love to talk to you about how we can make international volunteering more accessible to young people across Scotland.
The focus group will last 2 hours and you will receive a £10 Amazon voucher as a thank you for your time!
Please confirm your attendance by claiming a ticket.
