ESC Volunteering Project
Together for a better environment
29.7. – 29.9.2019
Are you interested in nature and gardening? Would you like to participate in arranging events and activities for locals?
Local Action Group (LAG) Nouseva Rannikkoseutu develops rural areas across seven municipalities in Northern Finland. In this project four (4) volunteers will work in the small city of Raahe (25 000 inhabitants).
The volunteers will be mainly working in workshops which are meant for young adults who are facing challenges with e.g. employment, education or life management. Workshops are aimed at training new skills and advancing participation. The volunteers will be primarily working in a workshop focused on nature and gardening but it is also possible to work with themes such as handicraft, media, IT and customer service. In addition, the volunteer will be participating in planning and execution of a city festival and other events that are arranged for everyone in the city and nearby region.
Accommodation, food and transportation arrangements
Accommodation will be arranged in rental apartments (organizers will take care of the renting process). Volunteers will get staff lunch during work days but other times they need to cook for themselves (allowance will be provided).
Distances are short in Raahe: main venues are mainly reachable by foot or bike. If needed, public transportation can be arranged.
How to apply
We would like to receive volunteers who are motivated to work with themes such as nature, gardening, peer guidance and event organizing. Working hours can change according to tasks, so volunteers need to be flexible.
Volunteers must be prepared to live in a small city environment in Northern Finland.
Volunteers can apply by sending CV and motivation letter to erja.simuna (at) nousevarannikkoseutu.fi .
Volunteers have been selected. Thank you to everyone who applied!
