What is volunteering?
Volunteering is about giving your time to a good cause. You do not get paid, but you do get a chance to use your talents, develop new skills, and experience the pleasure that comes from making a real difference to other people's lives, as well as your own. You can give your help to one person or to a community.
Who can do it?
Anyone. No matter how old you are, or what your background or your work experience is. It is of course easier if you speak a little bit Finnish but it is not necessary.
What can I do?
Almost anything. We have many kinds of tasks. You do not have to commit yourself for the rest of your life :). We will help you find a place to volunteer that suits you. You can also offer your help, if you have your own idea as how to volunteer. Please let us know!
On this website volunteering tasks are in Finnish under the title Avoimet vapaaehtoistyöt. You can also offer your help under the title Tarjoa apua.
