What is outreach youth work?
Outreach youth work is a form of specialised youth work. Its goal is to reach young people under 29 years of age that are outside education or working life and need support to get the services they need.
For young people
If you need help with something, outreach youth workers are there for you. They can also help you discover your own thing. If you are not sure who you should talk to, talk to an outreach youth worker! The service is meant for everyone under 29 years of age, and it is available in almost every municipality in Finland.
