How long will the coaching last? 

The coaching period is fixed-term and primarily lasts two years. The duration of the coaching will depend on your resources and goals. We will also tailor the number of activity days to suit your needs. 

How will the activities affect my income? 

Attending is free of charge, but a fee is collected for meals. The coaching point will pay for your commuting. If you use public transport, you will be given an HSL travel card. If you need transport services, the activity centre will pay for them.

No salary is paid for the coaching period.

What is everyday life at Haavikko Coaching Point like in practice? 

You will get to develop skills needed in working life and living independently and familiarise yourself with working life. Our coaching point is located in Maunula, but we also operate a lot outside the coaching point, so you will be practising independence skills in other learning environments as well.  

Our coaching is provided on weekdays at 9.00–14.30. The day programme of your group will start after a morning info assembly. We have lunch together at around 10.30. After lunch, we return to our groups.

We have a coffee break at around 14.00, after which we will assemble before the activities end to discuss the events of the day.  


We have nine instructors present every day. The instructors will take care of creating a day programme and the achievement of your goals.
