“Let us learn to appreciate there will be times when the trees will be bare, and look forward to the time when we may pick the fruit.”
The host organization Ikko is a modern, non-political and non-religious folk high school offering both general and vocational education for Finnish and international students and groups throughout the year. The school is situated in a location of superb natural beauty, right on the magnificent Punkaharju ridge. It is surrounded on both sides by lakes and magnificent scenery. The area offers excellent opportunities for a variety of nature and outdoor activities.
The school surroundings need maintaining so the volunteers will work with seasonal tasks including garden work, especially berry picking, tidying the environment and assisting in various tasks and events of local organisations.
