Youth services support the growth, status and living conditions of young people and promote their opportunities to be active. Youth work is carried out based on the needs and wishes of young people. We offer opportunities to be active, have hobbies and participate in safe recreational activities. We also offer support in various aspects of young people's lives. We encounter young people in different environments, such as youth centres, schools, public spaces and online.
Vantaa has 14 youth centres where you can spend time and engage in a variety of activities. At a youth centre, you can play games, do crafts, exercise and play sports, cook, participate in hobby groups and workshops, or just hang out. Youth centres also offer cultural activities from music and danceYouth centres
