This year, Finance Finland supports the Deaconess Foundation’s Vamos project to provide individual support and guidance to young people. There are tens of thousands of young people who have dropped out of school and working life. Many struggle with loneliness, financial worries, mental health problems, or substance abuse.
Vamos helps 12–29 year-olds towards school and employment. This activity is voluntary and free of charge. At Vamos, priority is given to the needs of young people, young people are cared about, and work is carried out jointly with municipal and other actors. Young people at Vamos are allocated their own individual youth workers, who have the time to get to know them and their needs.
