Youth Activities

Helsinki-based associations engaged in youth work are supported by the Youth sub-committee. The Youth sub-committee’s decisions to award subsidies are more based on using them to support rather than maintain operations, which means that all the associations must also raise funds themselves to ensure the continuity of operations. The types of subsidies, awarded on an annual basis, are: operating subsidy, wage subsidy, holiday season camp subsidy, and project-specific subsidies. For more information on the grant criteria and application instructions:
