Kipinä Youth Activity House includes a youth centre, a radio studio, a music studio, dance activities, and Itäluotsi activities for upper comprehensive school aged young people.

Afternoon activities for 3rd–6th graders are organised from Wednesday to Saturday, 14:00–16:00. Activities are implemented according to visitors’ wishes, and they include all sorts of fun things from playing board games to making videos.

For 13–17-year-olds, we offer a place where they can hang out, dance hall activities and instructor-led small groups from Wednesday to Saturday (every other Saturday), 17:00–21:00.

People over the age of 18 are welcome to participate in Kipinä’s activities, but the open activities are only intended for 13–18-year-olds.


Kipinä houses the Helsinki Unity Music -studioverkoston musiikkistudiot Mummola, Kellari ja Puukkopaja for 13–29-year-olds.
Lisäksi tiloissamme toimii Signaalimedian radiostudio.

Itäluotsi, which engages in social youth work, operates in the building.

Luotsi provides you with support for various life situations, organises varied activities and participates in cooperation related to your goals. The activities are voluntary and intended for upper comprehensive school aged young people in Helsinki.

Various groups and organisations also operate at the youth centre outside its opening hours.
