A man and woman are engaged in a discussion, using their hands for expression

Christopher Symes

As a participant on the programme, we would expect you to:

  • have a strong sense of local culture and identity
  • be able to access established local networks (e.g. social, professional or religious)
  • have good communication skills
  • be interested in learning and broadening horizons value fairness and social justice.

It doesn't matter if you need to build on some of the above experience. The most important thing is that you are interested in developing these skills and qualities and are passionate about creating change in your community.

If this sounds like you, we'd like to hear from you.

Although participants are normally recruited directly via our local delivery partners, there might still be an opportunity for us to put you in touch with a partner or to volunteer on a social action project.

Here are the countries where we currently run the Active Citizens programme. If your country is on the list, click on it and get in touch. If there are any opportunities available we'll let you know.
