Youth Centre Domžale was founded in 1998. It is a public institute, located in a town of Domžale in central Slovenia. It provides activities for young people between 7 and 30 years, their parents, youth workers and other experts in the field of youth and social work.
The principal aims of the Youth Centre are:
- to provide support for youth in the local area,
- to give them opportunity to spend their free time wisely and
