Low-threshold Services

PREV-CENTRUM, LOW THRESHOLD SERVICES

SERVICES

Low-threshold services create the conditions for making contact and specific work with children and young people who avoid the standard institutional support, or do not seek it actively. Low threshold Services are available for a wide target group: for young people who need support during the period of adolescence and meaningfully want to spend their leisure time.

 (1) Low - threshold youth club „SUTERÉN“

Safe drug-free space for children and young people. The support that we provide to clients in the club, is not to be alone on what is hard to deal with, whether in person, at home, in relationships, in school or at work. We offer our clients advice and assistance with homework, work or finding a proper contact and also counseling in difficult life situations. We also organize various events, workshops, trips and other experiential programs. Clients can choose from our range of leisure activities.
