Youth centre activities
- Public service
Young people can engage in many fun activities at youth centres. There are youth workers present at youth centres with whom you can chat with and ask for tips and advice or even help with studying and job-hunting.
The activities are free, voluntary and open to all. Young people are actively involved in the planning of youth centre activities. So, if you have a good idea, share it with a youth worker! You can plan tournaments, theme nights, courses or other fun activities. Vantaa's youth centres are safe, non-smoking and intoxicant-free recreational facilities. The centres are mainly intended for young people aged 10–17 and activities are organised in afternoons and evenings and at weekends.
Young people have the right to influence youth centre activities through the youth centre democracy. Youth centres support young people’s life management skills and promote their sense of community and social inclusion.
To whom and on what terms
The service is free of charge.
Young people can spend time and participate in activities in the municipality's youth facilities. Youth centres offer both instructor-led activities and activities organised by young people themselves.
