International Cultural Youth Exchange ICYE is a non-profit association that promotes intercultural exchange programs focused on voluntary social work. It encourages young people around the world, guiding collaboration in social projects, and opening new perspectives and a window to the world. ICYE promotes youth exchange between nations as a tool for global and intercultural education. The objectives of ICYE Bolivia are integrating different cultures, classes, ethnicities, genders and ideologies, and train young Bolivians about the reality in which we live; encouraging them to resume cultural values that have been forgotten or ignored, to get a better understanding of existing problems in the local, national and international communities to build social sensitivity that is subsequently reflected in our environment.
