Long Term Projects - European Solidarity Corps in Finland

Allianssi Youth Exchanges works as supporting / coordinating organisation for incoming and outgoing volunteers.

We work with our Finnish partner organisations and together are able to provide a meaningful and well supported volunteering experience for the international volunteers staying in different parts of Finland. We recruit volunteers for several partner organisations. These projects usually host volunteers for different periods, sometimes shorter stays may also be possible in some projects.

The projects are in different parts of Finland usually in smaller communities. All the projects have lots of interaction with local and immigrant youths as well as a wide variety of tasks. The working language is English, so the volunteer have to manage to run activities in English.

The projects are open for 18-30 year old residents and citizens of European Union countries.
