About Nuoret Kotkat
NKK supports districts and arranges education and activities for adult volunteers and peer instructors (13 to 17-year-old supporting group instructors), as well as district employees. NKK arranges national events for all members of Nuoret Kotkat, as well as international camps. The organization co -operates with other organizations that are part of the international Falcon movement. NKK also acts as an advocate for children´s rights and lobbyists in politics regarding children and youth in Finland.
All Nuoret Kotkat work is based on children’s rights and labour movement values, which are equality, democracy, internationalism, justice, solidarity and community.
Our work is based on volunteer work. Volunteers are very important to us and we do our best to support our volunteers in their important work. We organize activities together with children and youth and aim to get better at including children and youth in decision making. Participation is important to us.
Internationally we are part of the International Falcon Movement – Socialist Educational International (IFM-SEI) as well as European Falcon Network (EFN) and Nordic Arbetarrörelsens Barnorganisationer i Norden (ABN). We also co-operate with other national Falcon organizations. Our international opportunities for youth consist of international camps and participation in international projects, such as seminars, youth exchanges and volunteer programs.
