We also keep up with current research, arranging workshops and seminaries and we also start different projects together to develop the work at the youth centres. KC is short for “Knowledge Centre for leadership/youth work in open youth clubs.The aim of this centre is to develop and evaluate methods and leadership for work in ‘open activity’ at youth clubs and recreation centres.
