Citizen Forum, an information and development centre for volunteering, published a handbook in 2019 called ‘Handbook for young people’s volunteering’ (in Finnish). It is targeted at organisations that would like to attract more young people to working as volunteers, as well as gives advice on how to motivate and work with young people. The handbook reflects the experiences from the forum’s ‘ I help — young people in volunteering (2017-2019 project (in Finnish)’ which was funded by STEA — the Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations operating in connection to the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health. The main target group the handbook addresses is young people under 18 years old.
