Exchange Visits and Voluntary Work

Information on how young people can get involved in exchange visits and voluntary work, both locally and overseas...

Although Switzerland is not an EU member it follows EU policy for youth and children very closely. It also helps fund educational and youth programmes such as YOUTH and Leonardo.

The European Youth Portal is a good source of information on projects and provides links to lots of organisations looking for voluntary workers.

For information on voluntary work or to find voluntary work overseas, contact the International Voluntary Service (IVS).

The Hello Switzerland website has details on volunteer programmes throughout the country.
