Finland 6 ESC European Solidarity Corps Dagetk is a part of Kårkulla joint municipal authority, which offers services for people with intellectual disabilities or autistic spectrum disorders. The activities Dagtek offers are divided into several sections in different areas. The volunteer will assist either in our arts&crafts workshop or life skills activities – or in both if the volunteer wishes so. In the arts&crafts workshop, the role of the volunteer is to support the clients with special needs in their textile crafts work, art activities, and all kinds of daily activities. In the life skills activities, the volunteer will support the clients in their daily activities and give guidance for them.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
The volunteer will be accommodated in a local host family if a host family is found. Otherwise, the volunteer will live in a shared flat together with another volunteer of Dagtek. Lunch will be offered at Dagtek. Other meals will be provided by the host family or cooked by the volunteer (in which case the volunteer will get a food allowance). The possible daily commuting costs will be covered for the volunteer.
TRAINING DURING THE ACTIVITY
On-arrival training and mid-term evaluation training organized by Opetushallitus (Finnish National Agency for Education). The volunteers will also be welcome to join the on-arrival training and mid-term evaluation training of the youth exchange organization Maaimanvaihto – ICYE Finland, which coordinates the project.
We are looking for a volunteer interested in working with adults with different types of intellectual disabilities, autistic disorders, or minor learning challenges. It is important that the volunteer is socially active, flexible, and motivated to participate in community life, meaning being there for the clients and communicating actively with them. It is also important that the volunteer has open communication with the staff team and shares their ideas and observations with them. The working language is Swedish, so it is important to be motivated to learn Swedish.
