Youth Work

Working together and helping them to grow and develop is what Youth Work is all about. The work is based on a positive youth perspective, where meaningful leisure time, activities directed at young people and current affairs are the focus. A climate of trust and familiarity is built up, creating a direct link to young people allowing them to succeed or fail in a safe group environment. Youth work is devised and considered from the perspective of young people and is part of the municipal service network.

The activities are be carried out in accordance with the basic plan of youth work and in the spirit of professional ethics.
