Residential Youth Work

Starting from spring 2017, Varissuo has begun developing residential youth work, i.e youth work provided at the young person’s home, for 5th-9th grade girls with an immigrant background residing in the Varissuo area whom spend the majority of their free-time at home. The aim is to build an open and trustworthy relationship with the girl and her family. The first meeting is held at the girl’s family’s home, during which the girl’s social network and personal wishes are mapped out. The following meetings comprise of similar activities offered at Varissuo’s House of Girls, such as help with homework, baking, handicrafts, etc. The purpose of residential youth work is to expand the girl’s environment while finding interesting free-time activities and hobbies for her to engage in. Importance is placed on encouraging the girl to do things independently and participating in different activities, which holistically support her well-being and developing identity. Residential youth work also works as a low threshold for joining the Varissuo’s House of Girls.
