Activity description

Lyhty ry is a non-profit association founded in 1993. Lyhty ry's ethical goal is to promote the well-being of developmentally disabled individuals, their families, and the whole society. Lyhty ry's Media Workshop offers a unique opportunity for adults with developmental disabilities to work in the media and communications industry. Media and social professionals work as instructors. The everyday life of a media workshop is varied and varied: we attend various current events, do chat gigs, edit programs and publish them for others to listen to and watch. The media workshop has both a Finnish-language and a Swedish-language group. Lyhty ry's media workshop is open from Monday to Friday from 9.00a.m-16.00pm. The work is purposeful and each and every employee finds his or her own strengths. The role of the volunteer is to act as a mentor for the intellectual disabled with the help, support and with other workers.
