Youth information and counselling

Youth information and counselling is preventive youth work. It is one of the statutory services for young people, and its objective is to provide specialised information, guidance and counselling concerning different issues and situations in young people’s lives. Youth information and counselling work supports young people’s growth, independence and well-being. The basis for the services is the information and support needs of young people. Services are provided by municipalities and various organisations. They are directed at young people themselves, but also at young people’s parents and others who are professionally or otherwise involved with young people.
