Come As You Are!

The Boys’ House is a safe environment for 12-29 year old boys and young men located in the Oulu city center. We at the Boys’ House consider boys as individuals and appreciate everyone’s strengths.

The Boys’ House is a place free from bullying and discrimination. We meet everyone as an equal regardless of one’s social, ethnic or cultural background, beliefs, opinions or who one happens to like. We organize individual, group and open activities: the type of activity is chosen on the basis of a boy’s or young man’s current situation and needs. At us you can meet new friends and find meaningful things to do!

Forms of Activities at the Boys’ House:

Individual appointments allow you to come and talk to the workers of the Boys’ House personally. Individual appointments are conversational, often combined with some kind of meaningful activity. You can book a time through e-mail, call us or send a text message or a private message through Facebook. Our conversation can already be started through the chosen communication form.

Group Activities The Boys’ House arranges group activities based on different kinds of needs. Groups can be formed based on existing activities within the Boys’ House or based on ideas received through other networks. The groups usually last for a couple of months. Group work requires the participants to be commitment towards the group activities.

Open Activities include for example the Living Room and the Café which are activities provided according to the request of the Boys’ House visitors. During the open activity times you are welcome to come and spend fun free time at the Boys’ House, for example playing games, reading magazines, talking to new and old friends or making food.
