Ajankohtaisia EU-tuettuja vapaaehtoispaikkoja Euroopassa


Haluaisitko lähteä 6-12 kuukaudeksi johonkin toiseen Euroopan maahan ja työskentelemään vapaaehtoisena yleishyödyllisessä organisaatiossa esimerkiksi viestintätehtävissä,  kulttuurin, harrastustoiminnan tai nuorisotyön parissa?  Tarjolla on  usein myös lyhyempiä Euroopan solidaarisuusjoukkojen vapaaehtoistiimejä.

Lue lisää Euroopan solidaarisuusjoukoista Euroopan  nuorisoportaalin sivuilta. 

Kenelle? Euroopan Solidaarisuusjoukot on ohjelma, joka sopii kaikille 18-30 -vuotiaille, jotka ovat kiinnostuneita oppimaan ja toimimaan vapaaehtoisena paikallisen yhteisön hyväksi toisessa Euroopan maassa. Vapaaehtoistyötehtäviin ei vaadita erityistaitoja tai koulutusta, mutta omia tietoja ja taitoja pääsee yleensä hyödyntämään. Euroopan Unionin tukema ohjelma on erinomainen mahdollisuus lähteä toiseen Euroopan maahan hankkimaan työkokemusta, kielitaitoa ja saamaan uusia kokemuksia. Ohjelmaan kuuluu majoitus, ruoka, matkatuki, taskuraha, vakuutus, kieliopetusta sekä valmennus ennen lähtöä ja jakson aikana. Ohjelman kesto on yleensä 2-12 kuukautta, suurin osa vapaaehtoispaikoista haluaa vapaaehtoisen 6-12 kuukauddeksi.

Euroopan Solidaarisuusjoukkojen lyhytkestoiset (alle 2 kuukautta) yksilöprojektit on tarkoitettu nuorille, joilla on erityistä tukea oikeuttavia haasteita kuten.terveysongelmat, oppimisvaikeudet, vähemmistöryhmään kuuluminen ja/tai taloudelliset, sosiaaliset tai maantieteelliset haasteet.  Yleensä noin kaksi viikkoa kestävät Euroopan solidaarisuusjoukkojen vapaaehtoistiimit ovat sen sijaan avoimia kaikille 18-30 -vuotiaille, myös aiemmin Euroopan solidaarisuujoukkoihin osallistuneille.
