The SNJ – Service National de la Jeunesse or National Youth Service was created in 1964 by a ministerial regulation to meet the demand of young people and associations. SNJ is a public service whose main missions are the implementation of the youth policy and the organisation of educational programs for young people. The SNJ also ensures young people’s transition to working life.
The SNJ has 4 main missions:
- training and support for projects and educational activities with young people
- reception in educational centers dedicated to the media, sport or sustainable development
- support in the transition of young people to active life through local branches, alternative solutions to avoid inactivity and international mobility (voluntary service, working-holiday visa or hosting an au-pair). Following their arrival in Luxembourg, young au pairs must, among other things, attend an information session with the SNJ. In French or English, this meeting reminds them of the rights and duties of au pairs and also allows them to meet other au pairs. Learn more about working as an au pair in Luxembourg.
As a contact organisation in non-formal education, the SNJ organises many leisure activities, including summer camps, as well as trainings for young people in partnership with associations. From 6 years old. Luxembourgish language for the majority of activities.
The SNJ website is a mine of information for young people. You will find all the links to the websites dedicated to young people, as well as the programs of activities and camps or trainings.
