We promote worldwide short term and long term voluntary service to impact social, environmental and humanitarian issues.
"Peace through deeds, not words". We believe that people are capable of living together with mutual respect and without using violence to solve conflicts.
SCI has official relations with UNESCO as a partner non-governmental organization. SCI is a secular movement depending on the general public for funding and support.
Each year more than 5,000 volunteers participate in 2 to 3 week workcamps all over the world. Living and working together in an international group with people of various backgrounds and nationalities helps to break down barriers and prejudices between nations.
You pay travel and we provide food, a place to stay, and the most amazing experience of your life.

Long Term Volunteering
Experience other cultures as a medium or long term volunteer (LTV). Go beyond the workcamp and play a deeper role in peacemaking and working on environmental or social service initiatives. LTV positions are excellent opportunities for students to gain experience in international service projects and obtain a fresh persepective on world issues.
