Introduction

Tapulikaupunki Youth Centre is located in the immediate vicinity of Puistola train station. You can get to the youth centre with the K and P trains and buses 73, 74, 75 and 79.

Youth centre activities

The open youth centre activities are regular and safe activities for children and young people. We have nice and trained youth workers working in our building. They are in charge of club activities, and you can talk to them about anything. For example, you can ask them for help, advice or tips for finding a new hobby!

We cooperate with local schools, libraries, organisations and other operators. You might also see us taking to the streets in northeastern Helsinki or in digital environments. You can recognise us by our jackets, which have the City of Helsinki’s logo.

At Tapulikaupunki Youth Centre, you can find a well-equipped game room where you can play on a computer or PlayStation. Ask the youth workers for more information on gaming activities!

Opportunities to influence matters and project funds

You can influence the youth centre’s activities in your area at youth centre meetings. You can influence the affairs of the youth centre, Tapulikaupunki and the entire city of Helsinki through Ruuti activities. RuutiBudjetti is a participatory budgeting system for young people, through which even larger development dreams can be realised. With the Sponssi activity grant, you can carry out projects with your friends, for example. For more information on Sponssi, see here.

Ask us youth workers for more information!

What is required of me?

The only thing you need in order to visit the youth centre is a Youth Services membership card. Young people under the age of 13 can get a physical card from the youth centre, while upper comprehensive school aged young people can get a digital one. Apply for a jässäri, i.e. membership card, here.

A membership card is free of charge and provides you with access to all youth facilities in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. In other words, it allows you to use all services offered for young people by Youth Services in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.
