Global Learning and Youth Work

UNA Exchange offers a unique resource to Wales – our international volunteers.

Wherever possible, we promote connections between international volunteers and communities.   We do this by providing contacts between international volunteers and local people through school / youth group visits, community events and activities.

As a National Voluntary Youth Organisation UNA Exchange is one of many organisations working to provide a range of opportunities and activities which are relevant and responsive to the needs and ideas of young people. We are committed to providing stimulating activities through which young people can gain experiences which support the choices and decisions they make.

We believe that international volunteering provides a way of engaging with the world ‘out there’, and making it more real and accessible. We encourage young people to develop awareness and responsibilities towards themselves and others, vital life skills which will benefit them and society long into the future.
