Information providers


Department of Youth Programs of the Agency of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps  (until 31.12.2020 the Foundation Archimedes Youth Agency) has been the most prominent promoter of voluntarism among young people through promoting European Voluntary Service (since 2017 the Solidarity Corps) for years covering different information channels and forms.

There is a specific portal to advertise voluntary work opportunities called Vabatahtlike Värav. The portal is supported by the European Social Fund and by state budget and is coordinated by Network of Nonprofit Organisations.

Information about youth volunteering opportunities is distributed via specific information channels accessed by young people interested in volunteering or other similar activities. 

Youth information website Teeviit also mediates some voluntary work opportunities and creates some itself - Teeviit has a team of volunteers, who create content for Teeviit's social media, webpage, etc. Teeviit is coordinated by the Education and Youth Board.

Voluntary placements are also a part of a private portal providing information about available jobs (for example, CV-Online and CV Keskus).
