Small groups, club activities, open door activities and different kinds of events are organized in youth centres. Youth centre is a place where you can come alone or spend free time with your friends. In addition to spending spare time, you can play games, cook, do crafts and watch a movie in the youth centre. The youth centre is an intoxicant and a safe place to be where there is always an adult youth work professional present. In the youth centre you can also discuss confidentially with a counselor.
