Support youth

Working to give youth a better life requires support from us all.

Everyone needs recognition and meaning for their life.

There are more young people in the world than ever before, and only a tiny fraction of them are in Finland. These young people will inherit and take responsibility for the world that we adults have created. Every one of them, both near and far, wants to find meaning for their life, be happy and belong to a community.

Some young people are doing very well, but this is not the case for everyone, and bad life situations and a lack of perspective for the future can manifest themselves in many different ways. If a person does not have their own safety net, it can be difficult to think about how to build a future. We cannot leave these youth alone: being left without help is a great loss for both the individual and the whole society.

When young people find their strength and want to be an active part of their communities, everyone benefits. We at the Children and Youth Foundation work to make sure that all youth find their place. Join us and help youth to find it.

We need resources for our work. On these pages, you will find information about different ways you can help.


  • We do long-term work that supports young people’s self esteem and valuation
  • The youth get possibilities to participate and succeed, which increases their trust in their own talent and possibilities
  • We help youth without perspectives to find studying or working places

Every donation, large or small, is very important and welcome.
Our warmest thanks.

We would love to hear how you might be able to help – let’s be in touch!
