Youth Can Do It! 28.6.–7.8.2020

During this project, 12 volunteers help to prepare for two events: preparation and implementation of Kokkola Cup youth football tournament and Juku children’s sport camp.

 

Volunteers participate first in a 5 day on-arrival training, and after that they start with the work. Work is done in two shifts in mornings or evenings, and there will also be work during weekend.

Kokkola Cup is a football tournament gathering over 10 000 football enthusiasts for 4 days and it is one of the biggest children’s football events in Finland.

The tasks during Kokkola Cup are for an example: maintenance of the football fields: cut grass, put up signs, help to organize accommodation spaces at local schools, help to organize the kiosk by receiving items and help with storage.

 

Juku-camp is a versatile sport camp with long traditions. The purpose of the camp is to inspire children to move, to give experiences and to familiarize them with healthy lifestyle.

At Juku-camp the volunteers help with setting up the camp, assists staff in catering, in first aid and in information center, helps the leaders to organize and lead sport activities and other programmes. After the camp the volunteers help to clean the area, pack stuff and other practical work.
