The aim of the project is to bring the World closer and increase the awareness of young people, youth workers and local community about the World- different countries, cultures, languages, traditions, people, interests, possibilities- and to remind that everyone, despite being different and facing a different reality, have the same human rights and aspirations in life. International volunteers act as ambassadors of their reality, yet presenting creativity, tolerance and adaptability in the new settings, being a role model to local youth and a link to the World.

As a volunteer, you are expected to be open-minded, interested in working and communicating with young people, able to communicate in English, willing to stay in Estonia for long-term service and ready for the long dark winter here. Previous experience in working with children and young people may be an advantage.

– Introduce one’s culture, traditions and language in a creative and engaging way
