10. Youth Work

Last update: 31 March 2022
This chapter describes structures and activities related to youth work in Denmark. 

The term youth work is not widely used in Denmark. Youth work takes place in the public sector in municipal leisure activities such as youth clubs. Furthermore, youth work takes place in the third sector in associations and NGOs. Therefore, in Denmark, describing third sector youth work is almost the same as describing youth associations and voluntary activities.

There are no large national youth work programmes; however, some national funding opportunities exist, for which associations may apply.
