Programs

Outside our flagship mentoring program, we run a few club activities and programs that broaden the perspectives of young people and expose them to different areas they might be interested in exploring and learning more about. Our Science, Art/Creativity, Social Justice and Well-being equip youths with skills they need to navigate real world situations.

VALUE PROPOSITION

Are you a young person in Finland looking to join a community that can support you as you move to the next level in life?

Our mentoring program pairs young people up with a mentor who has been in their position before so they can learn from someone who’s been there and done it—and who knows what it takes to get ahead. Mentors are volunteers from all walks of life, so you’ll always find someone who has a similar background as you or at least has had some experience in a similar field.

Our program aims to provide youths with a community that helps them figure out how best to use their own unique skillset while also getting some practical advice on what it
