Koskela Youth Centre offers meaningful and high-quality recreational activities for children and young people aged 9 to 17. At the youth centre, young people can meet their friends in a safe and supervised environment and also get to know other young people around the same age who visit the building.

At the youth centre, young people participate in decision-making, and we try to encourage them to become active influencers. Of course, you can also simply come to hang out!

The facilities allow for a wide range of activities. You can come and play basketball, football, floorball, pool, ping pong, pinball or board games, for example! The sports hall can also be converted into a dance room. As for gaming consoles, the youth centre has several PS4 and Nintendo Switch consoles and computers. The youth centre also has a charging station for mobile phones.

Remember your membership card

In order to visit the youth centre, you need to get a free-of-charge Youth Services membership card, also known as jässäri. You can get the form for the card from the youth centre.

Open and small group activities

Our activities are for the most part open, i.e. young people can plan and implement activities together with youth workers. The youth centre also has small instructor-led groups that we set up as requested. Our active assistant instructors also plan activities for other young people.

Interested in influencing?

If you are interested in opportunities for young people to influence things, our instructors would be happy to tell you about the young people’s influence system Youth Budget as well as other channels for influencing things.


We are also happy to cooperate with parents. Guardians are welcome to come and familiarise themselves with the youth centre’s activities together with their children. On Tuesdays and at weekends, the building is used by organisations.
