We are a youth centre that focuses on gaming and digital activities.

We have a PC gaming room that has space for 20 people.

You can also engage in normal youth centre activities: play pool and ping pong, hang out in the chill-out room, play on a PlayStation, dance in the sports hall in front of a mirror or to the tune of the Just Dance game in the lobby, or talk to the youth workers while cooking in the kitchen! We can watch movies or a hockey game! Depending on the youth workers’ skills, you can also craft items.

The civil defence shelter houses a band room for which you can get a regular reservation, or you can just come and play when the room is vacant. The band room includes all the equipment you need to play music, such as a piano, drums, microphones and amplifiers.

Our youth centre also offers versatile facilities for organisations.

Welcome to Merirasti!
