Location: 6 months in Mongolian Host Community and 3 months in UK
For the past three years, VSO has been working with local volunteering organisations in 20 countries to support their capacity to deliver the programmes and to build a basis for national volunteering in those countries. We work with NGOs, networks, government organisations and community based organisations, etc to offer support through training, contacts, resources, study tours, consultancy, organisational capacity building, etc.
The Global Xchange programme is a six-month exchange programme which gives young people from different countries a unique opportunity to work together, to develop and share valuable skills and to make a practical contribution where it is needed in local communities. Global Xchange aims to support the development of active global citizens, committed to working for positive change within communities.
Global Xchange works with teams of up to 18 young people (aged 18-25), with equal numbers coming from the UK and from an overseas partner country. The participants are recruited, and the teams are formed, to reflect diversity in terms of geography, ethnicity, ability, education and gender.
Volunteers live with host families and work in host communities for 3 months in the UK and 3 months in the overseas country. They live and work in cross-cultural counterpart pairs, one from the UK , and one from the exchange country.
