Long-Term Volunteering Project in Estonia!

Location: Tallinn, Estonia

Project name: Long-term volunteering at Centre for Children at Risk in Tallinn

Hosting organization: Tallinna Laste Turvakeskus

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: Tallinn Center for Children at Risk is a welfare organization, where children who have been left without parental care or have behavioral or substance abuse problems, get professional help. This organization has two centers in Tallinn: Lilleküla Shelter and Männi Shelter. Children are hosted in these two shelters for various reasons, most common are vagrancy, home negligence, family violence, parental alcoholism or drug abuse, parental unemployment, or loss of residence due to family poverty. The staff that works directly with the children consists of the manager of the shelter, social workers, and a nurse who all aim to provide the children a safe environment. The main idea is to provide assistance and support to local personnel in daily work, particularly in running various educational and free time activities for the children and youth.
