Get access to hobbies and places to hang out with the free City of Helsinki Youth Services’ membership card
The City of Helsinki Youth Services’ membership card is your free VIP pass to youth centre activities, events and hobbies all over Helsinki. The membership card, or jässäri, is issued to all residents of Helsinki aged 29 or under. It is your ticket to all things fun: skateboarding, the music club, the arts club or just hanging out at the Youth Centre. Just show your membership card to join in on the fun!
In autumn 2020, a fully digital membership card will be made available to everyone over the age of 13. People under the age of 13 cannot register with the service for data security reasons. Instead, they are issued a plastic membership card with an annual sticker at the Youth Centre. We will not disclose your contact details to anyone, and you always have the right to check any information stored about you.
