Inter-Cultural Youth Exchange (ICYE UK) is an international volunteering charity working in the field of intercultural learning and youth development.

Established in 1993, we work with a network of local partners to organise overseas NGO placements throughout Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe. We also arrange placements in the UK for international volunteers to support local charities here, meaning ours is a truly unique cultural exchange!


Volunteering with ICYE-UK is a transformational experience with real impact. Our ethical programme promotes peace and intercultural awareness, helping to fulfil our mission through culture sharing and by encouraging young people to live, learn and work together.


We believe that local community action can have a global reach and positively affect the world we live in. ICYE UK is part of a federation of over 30 countries and promotes intercultural exchange and understanding between young people through voluntary placements overseas, including social and environmental projects in a range of countries in South America, Africa and Asia. We also believe in the importance of reciprocal exchange and host roughly 50 international volunteers in the UK every year.
