SOCIAL STRENGTHENING

One of the main objectives of youth center activities is the social strengthening of young people, with emphasis on supporting young people’s interpersonal skills, self-esteem,  and social inclusion. At Villa Elba we also offer a variety of tools to support young people’s social empowerment.

We are implementing the so called Nuotta training, which is aimed at young people in need of special support . It is also free of charge for youth groups, due to support from the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture. In addition, it is possible to find a volunteering place for a disadvantaged young person in a supported project abroad. It is also possible to participate in an international project in Finland as part of a foreign group. The goal is to strengthen young people by supporting their daily activities, strengthening their social skills and healthy lifestyle choices as well as developing work-life skills through positive experiences.
