The World Youth Exchange is coming to High Wycombe
Local homes needed for cross-cultural volunteers
High Wycombe and area's community groups will be amongst those to benefit from the arrival of 18 young volunteers (17-25 years old) from India and the UK in September. The World Youth Programme at Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), has chosen High Wycombe as one of three communities this year to host this exchange. During their three month stay in town, the volunteers will live and work in cross-cultural pairs, devoting their energy and over 6000 hours of volunteer work to the community, educational and environmental projects in and around High Wycombe. The Project Supervisor for the this project, Erin Bateman, is appealing for local families who would like to accommodate a pair of volunteers. A weekly allowance is paid to cover expenses and pairs will share a room. The volunteers will be working on their projects for four days each week, followed by a team-based educational activity day where they will share learning about community issues. After spending three months in High Wycombe, the volunteers will continue their work in a local community in the Garwhal Hills of India.
If you are interested in hosting the volunteers in your home, or would like to find out more about the World Youth Programme please contact Erin on 07866 541889 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
