Welcome to the UWCRCN Volunteer Programme.

By following the links on the left hand sides of these pages you should find information about:

  • the many organizations with whom this programme has established links;
  • how to apply to be a volunteer;
  • the terms and conditions of volunteering at the various organizations;
  • links to external sites offering advice on travel, health and related issues.

I hope to add updated information to these pages as often as necessary, so if what you want to know is not here now, it should be later – so keep checking back! Alternatively, if you have specific questions already, send me an email. You’ll find my details on the Contact page.

I welcome feedback on this site. It is designed to be interactive, so please send in your comments. I don’t honestly know how much time I will have to moderate discussions, but will do my best.

I look forward to hearing from you.
