The ICYE-programme is the long-term program where you can work for 6 or 12 months in countries all over the world.
The ICYE-programme is for the ages 18 to 30. You need to have another ICYE-organiation as your sending organisation. Find the list of ICYE-organiations on the international ICYE website and contact the one in your country or a neighbouring country.
The program gives you the best prerequisites to get to know the Danish culture, language and people, and you can develop your social and work skills by teaching at a Danish style boarding school, taking care of children in a kindergarten, or planning different activities at an after school activity centre. As an ICYE-volunteer you live and work with the locals, which bring you closer to the Danish lifestyles.
You can choose to volunteer in 6 or 12 months starting from August or January.
If you choose to travel via the ICYE-program, you need to contact ICYE in your country. They will guide you through the process and prepare you for your journey.
Take a look at the list of the Danish ICYE projects to get an idea of the type of projects you can volunteer at and read our National Profile, which is a very useful and fun guide about volunteering in Denmark. It consists of information about Denmark, the Danes, its culture, language, and traditions.
