The purpose of the Youth Centers is primarily to provide a safe environment for young people from local communities, where they can meet and work actively and spare their free time. Activities, together with young people, are coordinated by the coordinator. Four youth centres are primarily intended for young people in Ljubljana, between the ages of 12 and 18 and are open every working day from 14. to 19. hour. The propose of the youth center is to motivate youngsters to spend their free time in a safe environment and not on the streets.
There are some parts of the city that have a lot of violence, delinquency and vandalism. Youngsters had nothing to do so they were on the streets. The idea of a safe space for youngsters came from the local community who want to decrease the vandalism.
