The application deadline has passed.

Activity description

The practical team gives people with fewer opportunities the chance of learning how to work. This includes basics like working under a schedule or following specific work instructions. But also more practical knowledge about tools, constructing or secure work gear. The team spends its work days mainly outside, in any weather conditions. Because here in Sweden we say there is no bad weather, only bad clothing. As a volunteer you will work in the team but you will also learn about social work and are encouraged to lead the team. The team members change from month to month and the target groups differ. There might be Swedish interns or short-term international volunteers as well as people who need work training before they are able to enter the labour market. You will have a mentor and supervisor who will be the responsible persons for your project and tasks on a daily basis. READ MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT HERE:
