Outreach youth work
What is it about?
Outreach youth work focuses on helping the youth in need. In Tornio we have four outreach youth workers, two of which work with youths aged between 16- 29 years, and the other two youth leaders work with younger, aged between 13-15 years.
Outreach youth work might be needed when a young
- has no job or isn't in school or studies
- is about to leave their job or
- has troubles with life management
- has troubles with their military service or is about to drop out
Who can contact us?
- the young himself/herself
- school staff
- authorities (Kela, social services, police)
- anyone who is worried about their friend or relative
Outreach youth work in Tornio works closely with employment office, social
services, Kela, ground schools in the area, universities, youth
services, parish, mental health institute and vocational schools to
ensure professional help for the youth.
