Volunteering opportunities – Working groups

Help us to build a resourceful, engaging, inclusive and generous community!

S:t Thomas Samarit-Flyktingar Lund is scaling-up its work during the Autumn 2019. This is a challenge and a great opportunity that will require mobilizing resources and collective action! Welcome to join different projects, tasks or activities according to the following working groups (WG).

  • WG 01-Administration: organize how the training centre will be operated, managed and cleaned.
  • WG 02-Textile loop: coordinate donations of second-hand clothing and others; sorting out, washing/drying clothing, recovering textile, etc.
  • WG 03-English training: teach English to youngsters from 13 years old and adults in small groups.
