Nena from Greece and Martin from Czech Republic spent 11 months in a small town of Nurmes, in Eastern Finland, volunteering for Hyvärilä Youth and Holiday Centre in an EVS project.
Rautjärvi is a village of about 4,000 inhabitants in Southern Karelia in Finland and has seen a remarkable growth in its international activities over the past few years. People in the village have welcomed young people participating in youth exchanges and the European Voluntary Service (EVS) to join in the activities of the village and into the community. ”Absolutely fabulous”, enthuses Sanna Juvakka, youth social worker in Rautjärvi.
