Blog: Finland

Hello! My name is Paolo, I’m from Italy and I am 27 years old now! At the moment I’m going to volunteer for 10 months in a school with special needs students in Pieksämäki in the centre of Finland. I spend time with the pupils during classes but also and mostly during their leisure time. I decided to put in my blog some tales from this experience. Hope you can enjoy them!

The blog is from the season 2016–17. Paolo participated in Finland in the European Voluntary Service (EVS). Maailmanvaihto receives EVS volunteers for volunteer periods of 6–12 months. Would you be interested in participating? Read more about the EVS and apply!
