Many activites in and around the Nature School are only possible with the help of volunteers. In the early days all of the work was done on a voluntary basis.

Each year three volunteers spend one year in Soomaa, two as a part of the German "Voluntary Ecological Year" and one international volunteer with the "European Voluntary Service". They help with events and projects, prepare working materials, take care of the school grounds and supervise work camps. Our current volunteers are Carlotta and Eike.

To become a volunteer you can apply over the European Voluntary Service.

Are you interested in lending a helping hand? Then you can take part in our summer work camp! Volunteers from all over the world come together to experience the beautiful nature, meet new people and experience the transformation of an ancient school house.
