Global Xchange Programme

Get ready for the most challenging six months of your life!

Nine young Pinoys. Nine young British.
Six months. Living and working together 24/7.
Two countries. Outside your comfort zone.
One life-changing experience.

Are you up for it?

Global Xchange gives young people from the Philippines and the UK a unique opportunity to live and work together, develop and share valuable skills, and make practical contributions to disadvantaged communities in both countries faced with challenging situations.

The next batch of Global Xchange volunteers will have an opportunity to work with partners and communities that highlight issues around disability, secure livelihoods, and global citizenship.
