Hiiumaa Youthwork Center is searching for an active, initiative and cheerful volunteer who would carry out different activities for youngsters. Youthwork Center includes three houses: Kärdla and Kõrgessaare Youth Houses and Counselling Service. The volunteer will work mostly in the Kärdla Youth House.

- …will instruct the activities (x-box and wii games, boarding games, billiard, workshops etc) of the youth center, above all the activities for boys. There are lots of families whose fathers work abroad and there is a high prepotency of female workers in the youth institutions, that is why there are not so many activities for boys and their spare time is less fulfilled. Youth House expects volunteer, who has skills and will to involve boys in activities and contrive different activities.
