EstYES offers a wide range of long term voluntary programs through our international partners. Please do not hesitate to contact us for currently available opportunities or to get some answers to specific questions.
Mid-Term Volunteering in Social Projects
Besides EVS projects, EstYES also offers other opportunities for international volunteers. Primarily, this is about working with children or teenagers at social institutions and orphanages. It can last between 1 to 3 months, and sometimes can be extended up to 6 months.
There are no age limits or specific deadlines to apply for these projects. Volunteers have to express their wish to join the project by sending their CV and motivational letter to us.
Volunteers in the project are provided with board, lodging, linguistic materials, and in some cases pocket money. Volunteers are usually requested to contribute a modest participation fee, which covers the administrative cost of organizing and running the projects, as well as the cost of preparatory materials and local transport.
Camp Leader Positions
Each summer EstYES invites international volunteers to help run workcamps in Estonia as co-leaders.
Co-leading is an exciting opportunity to get involved with workcamps, develop new skills, meet new people, and visit Estonia!
Do you have the skills and experience we need?
- Co-leaders are expected to attend training for this and/or have camp-leading experience in their own countries;
- Co-leaders should speak good English;
- Co-leaders are expected to come at least 2-3 days before the beginning of the camp to meet other co-leaders and come to the campsite before other participants arrive;
- During the stay in Estonia accommodation, food, local transport costs, and other costs connected to running the camp are covered by EstYES.
The list of the camps where co-leaders are needed is available in April. If you are interested in co-leading a workcamp in Estonia, please contact EstYES’s office for further details.
