International Club is a club where young people have the opportunity to learn about new people and cultures, broaden their world view and explore the various opportunities for internationalization. During the club, young people can design and implement their own projects either in Finland or abroad.
How does the International Club work?
The International Club is organized as a club activity or a course run by an adult who works with young persons (eg a youth worker, a teacher, a volunteer) together with an international volunteer. In the club you will learn about different countries, cultures, practice English or other languages. The aim is to encourage young people to become active citizens of the world.
The Internet will be the most important tool when searching for information. We also use brainstorming techniques to develop ideas, etc. Everyone can’t or even might not want to travel to the same camp – so we will divide into smaller groups according to interests, each group will have an adult leader.
Each group makes a work plan / project plan describing their project idea. The description is used when searching for partners from other countries
Youth Center Villa Elba offers the International Club Training Package. It is also beneficial for someone willing to develop their International Club Managerial skills. The package is designed to last for 2.5 days.
