Helsinki Volunteer Fair is an event that connects voluntary organisations and people interested in volunteering.
The corona pandemic and related restrictive measures have made event planning challenging. Therefore, Citizen Forum has decided to cancel the 2020 Volunteer Fair in Helsinki.
Is volunteering for me?
Volunteering means taking action on issues that you feel are important.
Volunteers often learn new skills, meet new people, get new experiences, and feel that they are doing something meaningful.
You can volunteer for a day or engage for several years – it all depends on you and on the volunteering task.
