Tallinn Youth Work Centre

The number of young persons between the ages 7-26 in Tallinn , the capital of Estonia, is approximately 100 000. Tallinn has long-term experience in international relations with eastern and northern countries.

The youth work is mainly co-ordinated by one of City Departments - Sports and Youth Department. 

Tallinn Youth Work Centre (TYWC) belongs to Sports and Youth Department, was officially established in the beginning of February, 2003. The oldest youth centre in our structure, Lasnamäe Youth Centre, was established in 1998. TYWC is the umbrella organisation that organises regional youth work in Tallinn through its departments – Youth Centres and Tallinn Youth Information Centre.

The target group of TYWC, according to the Estonian Youth Work Act, is 7-26-year-old youth from different socio-economic background from Tallinn and its neighbourhood. The aim is to support and create the possibilities for various development of a youth through self-initiative and developmental activities.

The organisation is collaborating with non-governmental organisations and other institutions working in the youth field to implement various activities and projects. According to “Joint Intentions´ Agreement” signed in 2003, the document associates all the youth centres in Tallinn as one effective collaboration network that enables to use the common annual membership cards and tightens the collaboration between the centres.
The work of Tallinn Youth Work Centre can be divided into four fields:

1) Youth Centres,
2) Youth Information and Counselling,
3) Youth Workers´ Training and Youth Work Development.


Youth centres are the places that can be visited voluntarily by any youngster regardless the social and/or economic situation with the aim at free communication and self-development. It is possible to communicate, play, seek for information, get advice and help from the youth workers. The youth centres afford the following services: different clubs and studios, youth events, projects and programmes, regional town camps, international youth exchanges and sport tools borrowing. The work of these youth centres is based on the open youth work method.

The aim of TYWC is to accomplish leisure time activities through culture, sports, hobby school activities and youth work in Tallinn. For that, it organises events, entertainments, projects and programmes; camps and exchanges for youth. It works out projects and programmes to support youngsters` and youth organisations´ development as well.

In order to participate in the activities, projects and programmes Tallinn Youth Work Centre offer, youngsters are obliged to own the annual membership card . There are both, Estonians and non-Estonians – mainly Russians, visiting the youth centres. 60% of the target group are boys and 60% are aged 14-18. The frequency of attendance is growing 30% per a year.


At the moment, there are seven youth centres in our structure as follows:

Youth Information and Advice

One department of TYWC is Tallinn Youth Information Centre (TYIC) that was established in August 2003. The aim is to collect and distribute youth information in Tallinn that helps young people to organize their spare time. Offering counselling helps them to solve their problems - this altogether supports youngsters` development and socialization. The work is based on the principles of ERYICA. TYIC offeres information about studying, working, health, spare time, international possibilities etc.

TYIC offers information concerning following domains: free time facilities, youth employment, hobby schools, youth entertainments and events, international study and work possibilities and counselling services for not only youth but their families, pedagogues, social workers and youth workers as well.

Tallinn Youth Information Centre cooperates with youth centres, hobby schools, sports clubs and youth organizations. These institutions supply updated information where it will be set up.

Tallinn Youth Information Centre is co-ordinating the information portal of Tallinn that can be found in the address www.taninfo.ee and is currently visited by ca 70 000 persons in a month.


Youth Workers Training and Youth Work Development.

Tallinn Youth Work Centre has hosted the international Training Course on Basic Animation Tools for Practical Use from the partners from Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Also, we can be proud to be the first youth organisation in Estonia to send five youth workers to Spain, France, Greece and Finland for 9-week practical traineeship period in the frame of Leonardo da Vinci programme. We are also the hosting organisation for Leonardo da Vinci trainees as youth from Denmark, Wales and Germany have worked with us. Our organisation is also the place for traineeship periods in the frame of other programmes.

Besides international training projects, Tallinn Youth Work Centre also organises trainings and seminars on local level. We contributed to publish the booklet The Most Used Youth Work Definitions in Tallinn.

In November 2003, TYWC joined the Estonian Youth Club Union (EYCU), the umbrella organisation that unites the youth clubs in different regions in Estonia.

We are also the member of the Youth Network for Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC), and Youth Hansa Movement and we are belonging to the Union of Capitals of the European Union (UCEU).

This all contributes as a tool for youth work quality.
