Culture and youthwork
Volunteers will help the staff of Villa Elba with Christmas preparations and organizing Elf path events for kindergartens and families. The work includes:
- practical work to help to build up the Elf path. The work is many-sided: to prepare the branch elves, prepare lanterns and lights, plan and prepare activities for the path, and update the costumes for elves
- lead activities for visiting groups as an elf. We offer program for kindergartens during 10 days, and during those days volunteers are leading activities they planned themselves for the visting groups.
Accommodation and food:
During the project, the volunteers will live in Youth Centre Villa Elba. The accommodation is in cottages (4-6 persons/cottage). Therefore, it requires patience and flexibility, as you will share the cottage with other people during the whole project.
Meals are served in Villa Elba during on arrival training, and during the rest of the project, volunteers will get lunch at Villa Elba but prepare other meals themselves.
Villa Elba provides bed sheets and towels.
approx. 35 hours /week. Working days are usually from Monday to Friday between 8-16, but sometimes working time can be in evenings or weekends.
