About

Step into another world as a volunteer in fascinating Russia. Here, you will find a land of awe-provoking beauty, from frozen Siberia to exciting Moscow. Russia is a place of enormity - both geographic and cultural. As a volunteer here, you can see the astounding multi-colored towers of St. Basil’s Cathedral and visit dozens of other incredible sites. Take in the culture that created some of the world’s most timeless classical dances, music, art and literature! Russia is the largest country on the planet - nearly twice the size of China or the United States! It is also one of the most populous, but with large uninhabitable areas, almost one-fifth of the population live in just 13 cities. Volunteers in Russia stand amazed by the magnificence and variety of this great nation.

United Planet is the US and Canadian partner of the International Cultural Youth Exchange, or ICYE. As a volunteer in Russia, you will be hosted by Lastochki, ICYE’s Russian partner organization. Lastochki has been committed to promoting international volunteerism since their founding in 1997.

Possible volunteer projects include:
- Assisting people living with disabilities by spending time and helping them with daily activities
