Four-Week Apprentice Program | Ages 16-18
Concordia Language Villages will require all participants eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine to be fully vaccinated prior to arrival at a residential session, effective September 1, 2021. Read our vaccine FAQ for more information.
Please contact email@example.com regarding this session.
Salolampi’s Apprentice Program will help villagers learn Finnish while developing cultural competency as well as a community skill. Part of the time is spent in regular language learning groups, and the rest working on a community skill and developing cultural competency. Finnish apprentices live with regular Salolampi participants and join in Villages activities, but also contribute to the community through their skill by learning from experienced staff in their field. This is a great learning and leadership opportunity all while joining in the fun and magic that is Salolampi.
Participants receive a certificate of apprenticeship with work hours included in addition to reduced tuition. This program is for ages 16-18 with two years of Finnish or equivalent to show moderate fluency in spoken Finnish. Past experience at Salolampi is recommended but not required. Acceptance is subject to the dean’s approval.
Apprentice opportunities are available in:
- Social Media
- Camp craft/Outdoor skills
Concordia Language Villages reserves the right to consolidate or cancel sessions that are below minimum enrollment levels.
