Pitäjänmäki Youth Centre

In Pitäjänmäki Youth Centre you can play various games or simply hang out at our youth centre. Our facilities include ping pong, pool and football tables, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360, a gym hall to play floorball, futsal or basketball in, a small gym, three computers and a number of board and card games. Feel free to use our music room where you can play the drums, guitar and the piano. Our youth workers are here for you!

We organise tournaments against other youth centres, like the annual SäbäCup-floorball event.

Our band rehearsal spaces are situated in the neighbouring Pitäjänmäki comprehensive school. Apply for a regular practise time at the youth centre.

The youth centre runs an international group that takes part in the youth exchange programmes of the EU. Last summer, the group organised an international youth exchange in Helsinki and next year the young people in the group will be heading out to Europe. The international group regularly organises discos and band nights to visitors of all ages!

Thursday afternoons are reserved for action! From 14.00 to 17.00, kids from grades 3 to 6 have their own club afternoon. No prior registration needed so feel free to join us! Thursday’s club activities include baking, floorball, competitions, karaoke, crafts and theme days. The choice is yours!

At the youth centre, we have a number of computers at your disposal. With our MacBook Pro, you can edit images and videos and design posters. Our hall is a great place to, for example, set up a regular dance club with your friends. Our impressive sound system enables you to listen to music or practise your DJ skills. We also have a kitchen for you to do some cooking in.

Our regular house meetings provide an opportunity for young people to influence our future activities. You can have your say on what the youth centre needs and what kind of events you would like to organise. All of the suggestions you leave in our suggestion box, The Box, are always discussed in the house meetings. Your suggestions help to make the youth centre even cosier!

Every third Saturday, the youth centre is open between 16.00 and 22.45 when you can enjoy our hot dog stand. We also regularly organise discos and band nights, planned and carried out by the young people themselves.
