International Youth Houses

popis projektu

Our project "International Youth Houses" aims to find and maintain a positive international atmosphere in all the activities provided by youth affairs in the city of Pori. We want our youngsters and youth workers to have an open mind and positive attitude towards other cultures and new international people coming to Pori.

We wish our volunteers to lead the way and help us achieve our aims. In result our volunteers, youngsters and youth workers feel more comfortable and learn from each other during our everyday activities. We hope that our youngsters would also get inspired and encouraged by the volunteers to travel and experience other countries and cultures.

Volunteers will work as assistant youth leaders, take part in planning and executing all the activities our organization provides for youngsters in Pori. We arrange camps, trips, small group activities, events, projects, clubs, web youth work, special youth work, international youth work and open youth house activities.
