They can spend their free time in this open house. The work is based on young people’s everyday life and in their own social surroundings. The principles of the youth work are based on participation, voluntariness, easy access and appreciation towards young people. We focus on drop-in programs, which offer a variety of regular proposals. Each day young people can discover a special activity. According to the interests of the youngsters music, sport, media, art, youth education and politics can be explored. During vacation time we also arrange special offers such as excursions. We help young people to develop different abilities to shape their free time and we encourage them to take part in educational programs after school.
