 Voluntary work

We welcome you to join us in voluntary work. Doing it will give you both enjoyment and additional content in your life!

Voluntary work can involve, for example:
• planning weekend evening programmes and carrying them out
• producing cultural and other events
• acting as a peer information person
• putting an idea of your own into practice
• acting as a voluntary adult supervisor

Weekend activities
You can take part in planning weekend evenings and carrying out the plan. The training that youth volunteers receive at the special courses arranged for them will give you the necessary knowledge and skills. Voluntary adults are trained to handle weekend activities at youth centres alongside youth workers. This training qualifies you to work at a youth centre.

Additional information and registration:
Soili Voipio, tel: 040 716 0957

Event producers
You can lend a hand with producing the youth centres’ regional events. Young people produce the events together with supervisors from the youth centres. Training courses for event producers give you the knowledge and skill you need to manage a project and the ability to arrange public events.

Peer information
You can guide, advise and help other young people. Peer information points operate at youth centres. By working as a peer information person you can ensure that the information provided at your youth centre concerns matters that interest you and your friends. Ask about peer information at your own youth centre. 

Independent activity groups
Upon application, the Youth Department provides several projects run by young people with financial support each year. Some conditions apply when project grants are applied for. Examine the application instructions before you make a plan.
