The City of Heinola's Youth Services aim to support the growth of children and youth and to strengthen their civic and social skills. The Youth Services organize guided activities, targeted small-group activities and various events in collaboration with other operators.
Outreach youth work is special youth work, the purpose of which is to look for answers together with young people to questions troubling them and to help them find the services they need.
According to the Youth Act, young people must be given the opportunity to take part in the handling of matters concerning local and regional youth work and youth policy. Young people must also be heard in matters concerning them. The channel of influence for young people in the aforementioned matters is the Youth Council.
The Youth Services are responsible for workshop activities for young people at the workshop Työpaja Torppa and at the interior design store Juhla & Lahja. In the workshops, the emphasis is on work-based learning, life management skills and social empowerment. The goal is that every young person taking part in the activities at the workshop would be directed towards an option suitable for them after the workshop period.
