As a volunteer for the Together Association, you can promote immigrants’ integration and further interaction between native Finns and immigrants. As a volunteer, you can experience a multicultural and intercultural environment, and have the opportunity to meet interesting people.
There are many ways to do volunteer work for the Together Association. You can do something only once or sign up for something requiring a longer commitment, as well as everything in between! Any suitable volunteer work will be tailored to each individual’s wishes, life situation, skills, and know-how.
As a volunteer you can, for example:
a) act as a hobby group leader, teach in language groups or work as an assistant
b) help adult immigrant students with their homework and studies
c) act as a babysitter for small children while immigrant mothers are studying Finnish
d) lead a hobby group of a particular theme that is based on your own special skills
e) help to organize events and festivals or perform on stage
f) be a member of our association and take active part in its management.
You can also suggest your own way to do volunteer work. While volunteering you will be supported by the coordinator of volunteer work and by other fellow volunteers of the Together Association.
How to get started?
Before you can start volunteering, we interview you and brief you for volunteer work.
We want to make sure that volunteer work for the Together Association suits you and your life situation. We require our volunteer workers to be genuinely willing to help and to be interested in multicultural work.
