project description
Project takes place in two organisations; Espoo Youth Services and the Espoonlahti parish.

Espoo Youth Services provides activities in youth clubs, also for example in shopping centres, libraries and outdoor. Volunteering includes taking part in open youth work (9-17 years old) in one or two youth clubs. Volunteering includes working in groups, clubs and events, school visits, cultural events and organized trips. Volunteer can plan activities and create events with the support of professional youth workers. Working hours are mainly in the evenings and some weekends.

In the Espoonlahti parish two volunteers will get an insight into Lutheran child and youth work and work with young migrants and asylum seekers. The volunteer will be working in all the fields of child and youth work (evenings) and with families (mornings) including camps, groups, school visits and open door activities. A part of the volunteers’ tasks is to participate in running a church governed community center/Chapel.

accommodation, food and transport arrangements
All three volunteers live together in a rental apartment in Espoo. Apartment has a bathroom and a possibility to prepare food. Some dining may also happen in workplaces. Espoo has good public transport and also connections to our capital, Helsinki.

training during the project
Volunteers will have mentors and work leaders from both organizations who are prepared to support volunteers through their time here. Volunteers will also take part in arrival trainings organized by National Agency.

volunteer profile
We want volunteers who are motivated to work with different kind of young people in different environments. Volunteers need to be open-minded, willing to learn new skills to plan, run and evaluate activities. If volunteers have special skills in working in groups, handcraft, sports or other free time activities, please share it. Special skills are not required but may be useful. Previous experience in migration issues and integration can be useful.
Volunteers need to have a sending organization with a PIC number so we are able to fill the EVS application by the deadline 2th of February.

how to apply
Volunteers should send their CV and motivation letter. In the application needs to be mentioned why would they like to be volunteering in Espoo Youth Services or Espoonlahti parish. The selection will be based on motivation. Because close deadline, selection needs to made in the beginning of January

additional information
Project includes two different organizations in Espoo, Espoo Youth Services (municipal youth work) and the Espoonlahti parish. The work in parish will include also integration and religious dialogue. At least one of the volunteers will use football as a tool to promote coexistence. Volunteers can change places view times to get sight of the work done in both organizations. This will be agreed together with volunteers in their time of volunteering.
