Volunteer work

Are you interested in the activities of an international meeting place and working closely with people from different cultural backgrounds?

In 2019, more than a hundred people were a part of Kompass’s volunteer network. Each of them was involved in our volunteer activities in the way that was best suited to them. Some were involved in regular group activities, some in individual events. Our volunteers coordinate, among other things, Kompassi’s football group, the Finnish language learning groups, Estonian family club, and choir groups. In addition to long-term group activities, volunteers come up with their own ideas and experiment with new group activities such as dance, theater and a variety of sports activities each year.

Volunteering options:

  • assistant teacher in Finnish language courses
  • participant and facilitator in different groups
  • group leader / new group coordinator
  • participant in events or event coordinator


For volunteers we offer:

  • regular meetings with Kompass’s staff
  • workshops or trainings
  • information about Kompassi’s events and activities
  • Thanks giving event at the year end

How can you be a part of us?
