Outreach youth work

We operate in Espoo area, offering young people between 15-28 years of age guidance and support when they need it. Our goal is to meet you as an individual and to provide you with an opportunity to get safe and confidential help from an adult. We will work with you to find answers to any questions you might have. We will also help you to reach the services you need. Our primary mission is to help young people under 29 years of age who are outside education or the labour market. In addition, we offer support and help in finding the various services. Outreach youth work is always free of charge and completely voluntary for you.

Outreach youth work offered at home

Espoo’s outreach youth workers also make home visits. We can come to visit you at your home if you so prefer or if you have challenges leaving your home or need services at your home. We will take along a partner, such as a social worker, a Vamos employee or a psychiatric nurse, in accordance with your needs. You can request a home visit from any of the outreach youth workers.
