Interested in volunteering with people with intellectual disabilities? By 2020 Lyhty will be seeking young volunteers for housing units and workshops. Registering to European Solidarity Corps will give you access to volunteer vacancies. The project is open to young people aged between 18-30.
Lyhty employs international volunteers every year. Through their work they enrich the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and their families. An international volunteer opens the gateway to another country and culture and connects without boundaries. Volunteers working in the Lyhty come through the EU's European Solidarity Corps program or through the World Exchanges Association through the international ICYE program.
For over a dozen volunteers around the world Lyhty has served since the beginning of the millennium. Five of them have stayed in Finland, three of them have been trained for a profession after their volunteer years and now work as a professional in the Lyhty Association.
