accommodation, food and transport arrangements
The volunteers share a rental flat located in Espoo. The flat has two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. The bigger room is split in two smaller sections, to enhance a sense of privacy, but completely private bedrooms cannot be guaranteed for each volunteer. On weekend camps or trips, volunteers may have to share a room/tent with several other people. Volunteers shop their groceries from the closest super market and prepare food in the flat. Volunteers will use public transport (bus, metro) to travel between home and work. Espoo has good public transport and connections to our capital, Helsinki.
- Motivation to work with children and young people, previous experience can be an asset
- Open-mindness, willing to learn new skills, plan, run and evaluate activities
- Courage to take contact and talk with the children and young people
- Ability to cope with changing situations and schedules and be unprompted to engage in activities. One should be aware that spending work days around many people and surrounded by a strange language can be tiring.
- Special skills or experience e.g. working in groups, handcraft, sports, other free time activities can be an asset.
