Päivölä institute (Päivölän opisto) is an educational institute in which one can study languages, tourism, mathematics, natural sciences as well as law. The objective of the education is to prepare students for work life and university studies. Each year the institute organizes a wide range of intensive courses in which one can learn languages, various arts, leisure skills, information technology, mathematics etc.


The volunteer will be accommodated at the student dormitory of Päivölä. The easiest way to reach the voluntary workplace is to come by train to Toijala (the train station is situated about 9 km away from the institute) from where the voluntary workplace will arrange onward travel. The meals are served in the student restaurant of the institute. There are some bus connections near the voluntary work place to nearby towns but these conncetions are not very frequent.


The institute organizes courses not only for people of working age but also for school children, young people and senior citizens. For senior citizens it offers special courses for mental wellness. Päivölä institute is private and independent.


English language proficiency, flexibility and active participation are very helpful in the daily tasks. It is good
to be prepared to the fact that the weather can be very cold in the winter time.
