Volunteering in youth services

The City of Helsinki provides opportunities to become one of the volunteers who are engaged in the hundreds of activities offered by Finland’s largest youth services, alongside traditional youth work. As a volunteer, you will provide support and be present during youth centres’ evenings, weekend activities, night cafés, band nights and theme nights.

Anyone over 18 years old can volunteer in youth services. Professional youth workers always have the responsibility – you only need to be present. You may choose your volunteering hours and tasks.

Language: We work in several different languages. Volunteers do not necessarily need Finnish.

If you are interested, contact youth centres.
