Trojmesačná dobrovoľnícka služba v malej obci severného Fínska so začiatkom v Marci.
Local Action Group (LAG) Nouseva Rannikkoseutu develops rural areas across seven municipalities in Northern Finland. In this project two (2) volunteers will work with young people in the municipality of Tyrnävä in the North Ostrobothnia region. The municipality has a population of 6 700, and approx. 40% of them are under twenty years old. Tyrnävä is know for vast fields as far as the eye can see. Volunteers will participate in the local youth work: joining youth clubs, youth workshops etc. They will work together with local youth to create activities and increase involvement. Volunteers will also be planning and organising events for and with local residents, including events which celebrate the start of the Christmas season.
The project starts on 1 March and ends on 20 June 2021 (the exact dates may change depending on how the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) affects the circumstances)
Accommodation, food and transportation arrangements
Volunteers will be accommodated in an apartment. Volunteers will need to cook for themselves (food allowance and pocket money will be provided). Within the municipality the distances are short: main venues are mainly reachable by foot. If needed, other transportation will be provided.
The volunteers will participate in a on-arrival training organized by the Finnish National agency. The volunteers will also participate in Finnish language lessons. Volunteers are guided to all tasks. The volunteer’s personal skills or interests will be considered and discussed before the project and an individual work plan will be made.
We would like to receive active volunteers who are motivated to work with children and young people. Working hours will change according to tasks, so volunteers need to be flexible. As the tasks include working with children, an extract of the criminal records is required. Volunteers must be prepared to live in rural environment and in Finnish winter circumstances.
How to apply
Volunteers can apply by sending CV and motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for applications is January 6th, 2021.
