Childhood and youth

Child and Youth Services:

Child and Youth Services aim to promote the quality of life for children and adolescents in the commune. They initiate and sustain procedures for making young people aware of the negotiation processes in conflicts. They enable individuals and groups to participate in drawing up and modifying these procedures.

Child and Youth Services have the job of strengthening the individual identity and sense of responsibility in children and young people as well as their social interdependence. The Services offer children and young people careers' advice and a free space for them to develop their own values.
