What is Volunteer Finland?
Volunteer Finland is a community, that provides a meeting point between people who are willing to volunteer, and organisations that need volunteers. It also offers services for organisations that want to outsource the management of their volunteers. Find us on Facebook.
Volunteering can bring economic and personal benefits to the individual and to the broader community. Often we think about volunteering as a charitable activity, such as helping schools and the elderly. But volunteering can also be for businesses and commercial activities, such as festivals and conferences.
Particularly through those commercial activities, there are great opportunities for networking and friend-finding; on-the-job skills improvement and training; integration of foreigners into local activities and culture; references for jobseekers; and community development.
