Centres of Expertise in Youth Work

In March 2020 the Ministry of Education and Culture appointed six national Youth Work Centres of Expertise. These Centres of expertise consist of a contract-based consortium of two or more co-implementers.

Main goal of these centres is to develop and promote basic and special expertise in youth-related issues as well as expert and other services in youth-related fields by producing, compiling and sharing knowledge and information on young people, youth work or youth policy.

Koordinaatti continues to develop the youth work field as a part of three centres of expertise:

Centre of Expertise for Digital Youth Work - Coordinated by City of Helsinki / Verke

Centre of Expertise for Municipal Youth Work - Coordinated by the City of Lahti / Kanuuna 

Centre of Expertise for Participation and Influencing - Coordinated by Youth Academy

Youth work centres of expertise form a network supporting the implementation of the objectives set out in National Youth Work and Youth Policy Programme 2020-2023. The centres of expertise develop and promote competence, expertise and communications in the youth sector in accordance with the Youth Act.
