The City of Helsinki Youth Services doesn't have own youth center in Pihlajisto. Therefore we are staying in spaces of Pihlajisto-Viikinmäki residents association.

Come to Mesta!

In Pihlajisto’s residents’ house Mesta youngsters can meet their friends and play with computer or Playstation. We are open for 3rd to 6th graders. Youth older that that can go to Pihlajamäki’s or Viikki’s youth centers.

Nice things to do and happenings

We are organizing events and we are cooking together every week. We don’t accept cursing or teasing. We’re here to enjoy each others company! Good vibes of the day come from hanging around with friend, playing and chatting.

We’re here to discuss and hear about what’s on your mind. If you have an idea about what we could do together, please let us know! We are also visible in the area, in school etc. and we want to work together with other organisations in the area.
