CICD is an international college with students from around 10 countries, situated in north east England.
We are a residential college so students, staff and volunteers all live here on site.
Our courses run all year around and are for people who prepare to go as volunteers to development projects in Africa or India.
We are situated in a beautiful rural area, in the middle of 30 acres of park also inhabited by our local wildlife (rabbits, foxes, deer....). We have a big walled garden where we grow organic vegetables and hold chicken, ducks and geese.

You are welcome to join us as a volunteer helper for a period of 3 weeks up to 2 months - or maybe more.
You will then also enjoy the life and team spirit of our international community! The daily life here is rich with different cultural activities.
CICD is a busy and active place and you can help with many different tasks in these areas:
- Our park and organic garden farm. Planting, clearing and weeding, harvesting, making new beds, making compost, taking care of chicken, ducks and geese, repairing the greenhouse and more...
- Marketing and promotion office. We need volunteers to promote and make our programmes known in many countries - in Europe as well as in Asia and Latin America! We also want to make more short films, improve our ranking in google and social media and in general become much more visible online, design new materials for the web and for printing and more…
- The clothes and shoes recycling project. Repairing and painting our collection boxes, or maybe help with emptying the boxes around in north England.

While you are here, you are of course welcome to join in our spare time activities like sports, music evenings and film club as well as the presentations from volunteers who share their experiences from their work in Africa and India…and you can also contribute with presentations or food or songs from your own country!
We look forward to hear from you!
