About

 The United Kingdom, or UK, is made up of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Island, all islands in between the northern Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. The UK’s history is rich and diverse – from mysterious Stonehenge, to Roman rule and Arthurian legend – this history has long captivated the imagination. After World War II, as the British Empire began to collapse, the UK united and built itself into the modern and prosperous nation it is today. Cool, rainy temperatures year-round characterize the moderate climate here. As a volunteer, you will get to experience life from a local’s perspective while working with those who find themselves on the fringes of society. United Planet is the US and Canadian partner of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in the United Kingdom, you will be hosted by ICYE UK, ICYE’s partner organization there. Staff at ICYE UK host up to 50 volunteers year-round for a variety of community programs.
