ESC volunteers- stories

24.9.2019 Gianluca


Hi! My name is Gianluca, I´m 20 years old and I´m from Italy. I´ve been volunteering in Youth Center Vasatokka for six months, and I will continue for next six more months!
My work here consist in taking part in the various activities in which kids and groups are involved, mostly nature-related activities (hiking, fishing, wilderness skills, paddling) but also games and workshops. When needed I´m also involved in cleaning and kitchen work.
In my spare time I like listening to music, playing videogames and playing guitar. I decided to come here in Lapland to experience something culturally and geographically completely different from my home country and to challenge myself in a job that I´ve never done.
