Volunteer

JOIN OUR CREW

SHIFT is a non-profit organization made by a driven group of volunteers – seriously, they are the heart and soul of the organization. What makes them stick around? Everyone has their own reasons but there’s one thing binding them together. Some call it hunger for personal growth, some eagerness to learn and some bravery to throw yourself out of your comfort zone. Our next event will be 29.-30.8.2019 in Turku.  

WHAT WE EXPECT

You don’t have to have tons of experience. You just have to know what your skills are, what do you want to learn, and you have to have the drive to work for what you want. Be you.

  • Great passion towards learning new things (you don’t have to be pro, we learn as we go)
  • Keeping your promises and executing your tasks like a champ
  • The internships are unpaid, and we understand that you have studies/work/a personal life as well.

 

WHAT YOU GET

Among us, we have challenge lovers, lifelong learners, engaged workaholics, quiet powerhouses, hypersocial people persons, analytical thinkers, weirdos, artistic talents, travelers… you name it. One of our core values is acceptance providing everyone a safe environment to try their best and thrive through failures – the way we see it: “if you never fail, you are not trying hard enough”.

  • A safe place to master your skills
  • Personal guidance for your specific task
  • Mentoring from seasoned entrepreneurs and our specific HR Partners
  • An international group of friends and colleagues
  • SHIFT partner and investor networks at your disposal
  • SHIFT 2019 (already legendary) Volunteer Thank You Party!

Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Simply this is the place where you learn whatever it is you want to learn.
