Volunteers Needed At VSO Abuja Office

Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) is the world’s leading independent international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty in developing countries. Our high-impact approach brings people together to share skills, build capabilities, promote international understanding and action to change lives and make the world a fairer place. VSO is accepting applications for the 2015 Q14 VSO-ICS Program in Nigeria. This is a three (3) months youth centered community development program that brings together young people (aged 18-25) from the UK and Nigeria. Each team will typically consist of 20 young people with equal numbers coming from the UK and Nigeria.


In carefully selected communities, volunteers work in placements fully supported by our implementing partner organization(s), 2 Team Leaders and a Project Officer. Together in cross-cultural counterpart pairs, volunteers live with host families and work in the host communities. The type of work varies depending upon the needs of the community, but can include service delivery, advocacy work, and peer-to-peer education programs. Through a programme of structured personal development and learning, VSO-ICS aims to create a cadre of young people who will make lifelong contributions as advocates for international development and as agents of social change within their own communities.
