Information providers / counselling structures

Public authorities share information about non-formal and informal learning and quality of youth work as part of their statutory duties based on for example the Youth Act.

Awareness raising initiatives

As mentioned in Youth Wiki Finland 6.1 General context there are broad options for non-formal learning possibilities, and thanks to their long history and statutory nature they are well-known among citizens. Often, at least in part, modes of non-formal learning are also financed with public funding.
