Outreach youth work

Kerava’s outreach youth work offers help and support to young people aged 16–28 who are not in education, training or employment and require support to access services.

The main principle of outreach youth work is to provide young people with individual guidance and support in everyday matters that cannot be provided by means of basic youth work. Cooperation with the young person is carried out as long as the person feels that they need guidance and support. Guidance is always free of charge and completely voluntary for the young person.

When to contact outreach youth work?

  • You don’t know what to do next.
  • You have problems with money or other day-to-day matters.
  • You would like to talk confidentially about things that are weighing on your mind.
  • You’re wondering what’s your thing.

An outreach youth worker will support you in matters that you feel are important and necessary.

You can leave your own contact information to Kerava’s outreach youth work securely through the yhteysetsivaan.fi online service. In the online service, professionals from different sectors who encounter young people in their work can also provide the contact details of a young person in need of support with the person’s consent. Leave a contact request on the yhteysetsivään website.

You can also email us at etsivat@kerava.fi or get in touch with the outreach youth workers. Contact details can be found on the Finnish-speaking site.
