Volunteer with Environmental Conservation Projects

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

We are currently recruiting volunteers passionate about environmental conservation in Costa Rica & Honduras. One example- "Fundación de Parques Nacionales – Parque Naciones Unidas” is an NGO in Honduras that promotes & contributes to the conservation, improvement and administration of El Picacho.

Our projects work across fields including youth development & teaching, HIV/AIDS awareness & health promotion, human rights & environmental conservation. Uniquely ICYE UK also receives & supports young people from all over the world to volunteer at social projects throughout the UK as part of a global exchange. Inter-Cultural Youth Exchange (ICYE UK) is an ethical volunteering charity that sends volunteers to live & work throughout Latin America, Africa & Asia, helping to support local NGOs, communities & to develop their own skills & experiences. As part of an international federation of NGOs, ICYE UK ensures excellent training & support & prides itself on breaking cultural barriers & bringing different people together.

ICYE UK is currently recruiting volunteers passionate about environmental conservation to support our long-term programme (6-12 months) in Costa Rica and Honduras.


Language lessons offered on the long-term programme and an opportunity to travel on both programmes means our volunteers can get to know a country with an entirely different social, economical and political situation.

Our volunteers also live with host families, which is a wonderful opportunity as it enables volunteers to integrate into the local community and also develop their language skills! We believe in offering a true cultural immersion as part of our short-term and long-term programmes. Well, volunteer s work with local NGOs, which are run by local people and truly understand the challenges and reality of development projects in their country.


No previous experience required but volunteers must have enthusiasm, flexibility, dedication and desire to experience a new culture.
