ICS Social Return on Investment Evaluation

We believe in the value of youth volunteering, recognising that the experiences of volunteering, and the skills developed, are crucial for a young person’s personal and professional development.

The learning journey that accompanies ICS volunteers through their time on the programme therefore supports this development and encourages the journey towards active citizenship, with alumni becoming agents of change in their own communities and beyond.
