The focus of the Marttinen youth centre program services is in environmental, adventure and cultural heritage education. Thus we aim to promote the appreciation of traditions, reinforce people’s connection with nature and support the development of young people’s identity.
The instructors are Marttinen’s own youth work professionals or our highly skilled cooperation partners. In addition we offer students in the field the chance to participate in an apprenticeship in our safe and varied operating environment. Marttinen’s program services are developed further through interaction with children, young people and instructors.
Marttinen is one of the nine centres supported by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture.
