Participate in Voluntary Activities

Do you live in Finland? Are you interested in activities of an international non-governmental organization? The most part of Maailmanvaihto’s activities are carried out by volunteers, come and join us!

We welcome into our voluntary activities people interested in intercultural learning. By participating in our voluntary activities you can gain new experiences, skills and friends.

We have tasks that require little to none training and can be picked up easily, as well as more challenging ones that require more training and commitment. It is possible to get a certificate on participating in our activities.
