Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.

About this programme

No matter where you are in Scotland, we offer you an opportunity to learn and gain skills through training and volunteering opportunities abroad.

At the moment, we are looking for people 16+ to come and build houses for Ukranian refugees in Romania.

We want to help you to feel confident, get qualifications and help others from disadvantaged places.

We take volunteers on multiple trips throughout the year, as well as mentors who will be by your side to support you.

We work with partner organisations to organise volunteer placements abroad in Ghana and Romania, and dependent on the political situation, Eastern European countries. They all have different activities and tasks and will work on some different skills.

If you would like to be fully funded to go somewhere new, and experience a different culture, this is for you!
