Who are we?
Our mission is to inspire young people to make a difference in the world by voluntary work. By having the human dignity of people as a core of our actions, we encourage the young to engage in social development projects that help the neediest. We want to serve them and have an open mindset to be able to share with, and learn from them. We believe that by supporting solidarity today, we build a better society tomorrow.
International Youth Cooperation Suomi ry is a youth association operating in Finland since 2015 and established legally in 2017.
