Eos Cares is a social sustainability program within the basketball club IK Eos in Lund. Eos Cares offers the population of Lund a range of social activities, free of charge. The program also collaborates with the Municipality, and with other organizations and associations, in order to create a higher degree of social inclusion for all societal groups in the local community. Last year more than 2500 participants visited the activities of Eos Cares.

Currently Eos Cares activities are organised within these following programs :



  • Eos Social Hub: The English-speaking unit of EOS Cares, offering social activities for networking and personal development, free and open for everyone in Lund. Within the Social Hub are run e.g. our Language Cafés, Local Discoveries, and several other types of social groups, seminars and events.


  • Prisma: A program run together with Lund Municipality, with the aim of helping with the integration of refugees. See more here !


  • Meeting Central Ukraine: Efforts for the Ukrainian refugee community in Lund and surrounding municipalities.



Eos Cares is continuously looking for new interns, who want to learn from and contribute to the work of our organization. Here some examples of tasks that an intern may be responsible for as a team member :

  • Language Cafés: Helping with the set up of sessions, leading conversations or supporting volunteer conversation leaders, recruiting new ones and also market the activities to draw more visitors.

  • Language Accelerator: Small-group sessions for high quality conversational training.

  • Bike School: Organising of bike school session, in collaboration with the Red Cross in Lund. Also repairing bikes.

  • Upcycling and handcraft: Restore furniture, clothing and other items in our Fixa Till upcycling workshop (Återbruksverkstad).

  • Local Discoveries: Orginizing hikes and other events. Managing participants and involve them in our community.

  • Cook & Bake along Team: Cooking food or baking fika/refreshments for Eos Cares events. Managing food collection and the food storage in Eoshallen.

  • Graphic Design Team: Creating promoting designs as part of the graphic designers team.

  • Events, Seminars, other social activities etc: Eos Cares runs a lot of events of various kinds. All initiatives to unite people for a good cause are appreciated.

Note: If you speak any of the languages that are common among refugees (Arabic, Persian/Dari, Turkish, Ukrainian, Tigrinya, Somali etc), a lot more opportunities open up to participate in various support activities.


Depending on role, tasks and scope, the internship will provide a substantial degree of general work experience, as well as experience of activity management, leadership, and knowledge about the NGO sector and societal integration efforts. You will also establish a good network of personal relations during the internship. For interns that are interested, Eos Cares can also offer the opportunity to participate in the Swedish-Accelerator program.


Language Cafés in Eoshallen are during the summer held outside, if weather allows.


This internship is unpaid. Its duration should be 12 weeks as a minimum, but preferably longer. The amount of working hours per week is set individually in agreement with the program management, and can fall within the range of 15 hours/week up to full time. It may vary substantially from week to week depending on the tasks at hand. For shorter internship, we much appreciate when the intern can engage small-scale as a volunteer prior to the start, as it much facilitates the assignment of roles & tasks. Due to the nature of leisure-time activities, work hours can easily be scheduled on evenings and/or weekends, if corresponding with the intern's availability. Meetings within the Social Hub program are held in English, and within the Prisma program in Swedish.
