Youth Work Norway

Ungdom og Fritid is a national, non-profit organisation which organizes over 700 youth clubs.

We arrange seminars and courses within the field of youth work – both for young people as well as for professionals and volunteers.

Ungdom og Fritid also aims to produce relevant literature and to coordinate and upgrade education for professional youth workers in order to increase both the quality and the status of their profession. As members of our organisation, the youth clubs can also obtain information, campaign material and activity equipment at low costs.

To make sure that every child under 18 years has a youth club to attend, and to develop and improve already existing youth clubs, we have for several years been working to make youth clubs mandatory by law. Our demand is supported by many youths, youth workers, organizations and politicians.
