Do you want to work for peace, solidarity and intercultural understanding?
Would you like to spend a couple of weeks this summer by volunteering for a community project and learning about different ways of life in Finland? If your answer is yes, apply to be a camp leader on KVT’s voluntary work camps!
Being a camp leader is an enriching international voluntary work experience. Kansainvälinen vapaaehtoistyö ry (KVT) organizes international voluntary work camps in different parts of Finland every summer and is looking for camp leaders for our camps in the summer of 2022!
The camps bring together 5-12 volunteers of different nationalities and backgrounds to live and work for projects that benefit local communities and have an impact on a social, cultural or environmental level. You can see the descriptions, locations and dates of the camps here.
Camp leaders will not receive financial compensation for their participation but their travels to the camp and to camp leader training (if organized as an on-site event) will be reimbursed. All volunteers will be provided with food and accommodation during the camp.
KVT expects all camp leaders to participate in a two-day camp leader training before the camp. This year there will be two opportunities to participate in a training:
- May 21st to 22nd
- June 18th to 19th
