Your work as a volunteer

Our long term volunteer is placed in Allianssi office in Helsinki. The volunteer works with a variety of tasks taking into consideration the skills and interests of the volunteers as well as the current activities of the organization. Most of the tasks would be related to our international and intercultural activities and exchanges. The volunteer will co-operate with our international partners and young people related to volunteer or work experience programs, international trainings and exchanges, community activity projects and other current initiatives. Allianssi office is centrally located in Helsinki.

The volunteer will be a living example of European Solidarity Corps program and is expected to actively share her/his experience in Finland through social media channels in order to encourage other young people to volunteer and become active citizens and Finnish organisations to host ESC volunteers. 

Promotion of  volunteering locally and internationally in order to enhance  the importance of voluntary work in intercultural and non-formal learning and active community  are essential in this project. The volunteer will also collect information and produce content on our current topics such as youth empowerment, inclusion and intercultural mentoring. 

The interest in working with and for young people, experience in project/team/community/entrepreneurship activity and skills in communication are an asset as well as sufficient level of English, self-initiative and positive attitude towards life.
