You can join the Discord server at https://discord.gg/3fHFKtj. There is always a youth worker or a youth professional on the channel. In addition, you can discuss with members of the Homies Youth Work project and the Virkku team (Jyväskylä region youth association). Youth workers also answer questions on WhatApp and Instagram.

Outreach Youth Work has its own Discord server at https://discordapp.com/invite/nrgyNKg. On the server it is possible to chat anonymously. Youth workers will be on the channel on weekdays at 10-17. The Akku group meets on Discord each Wednesday and Thursday at 12-15. 

New Discord channels will be set up as needed. One-stop Guidance Center Ohjaamo Jyväskylä, for example, is hoping to have a channel of its own.

Youth workers in the streets 

In the afternoons and evenings youth workers will be moving around in twos in places typically favoured by young people. The purpose is to give the young reliable information on the coronavirus and the need to avoid gathering together in order to prevent the spread of the virus. The young are also shown how to use the online services of Youth Services. 

Meetings of the Youth Council are currently held remotely. 

All youth facilities (for teenagers and young adults) and the Youth Arts Workshop of the City of Jyväskylä are closed. All group activities have been suspended. 

More information about Youth Services and any changes and updates in its activities can be found on the website of Youth Services and on Facebook and Twitter:
