Do you have experience related to volunteering or organizations with KVT or elsewhere? Do you share KVT’s values and wish to promote understanding and peace between people? Apply for the KVT board!
KVT Finland has promoted peace and understanding between people already for over 70 years. Yearly KVT organizes international voluntary workcamps all around Finland. The camp participants have very different backgrounds. On the camps everyone works for a common goal, which helps deal with prejudice and break boundaries. KVT functions on a grassroots level on behalf of peace, and doing things together and equality are its core principles.
The KVT board is a group of active members selected by KVT members. The board makes all the decisions for KVT and plans and implements its activities. As a member of the board, you will get to participate in KVT’s work for peace, gain new experiences and learn to know great people in Finland and abroad. As a member of the board, you will also develop your skills outside the board meetings by participating in events, trainings and seminars.
Both those who already have experience as board members from NGO sector and those who are only getting to know this sector, can find things to do in the board. The most important thing for a board member is to share KVT’s values, to participate actively in the work of the board and to have the desire to make an impact. At KVT you will not be a rubber stamp!
Are you interested? Send KVT president Anni Lamponen () a short and informal presentation of yourself by 15.11.2020. Tell us who you are, how well you know KVT and why you are interested in becoming a board member. Anni will also answer any questions related to board membership – don’t hesitate to contact her! The new board members for 2021 will be selected in KVT’s autumn meeting 19.11.2020.
“Join us, this is fun! The best thing about KVT is that it is so easy to join the activities: everyone will surely find something meaningful to do that speaks to them. I think KVT is a good representative of lifelong, informal learning, where everyone can develop while making the world a better place, whatever their age or life situation.”
