Created in 1964 by a ministerial regulation to meet the demand of young people and associations, the National Youth Service is a public service whose main missions are the implementation of the youth policy and the organization 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 geared towards 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, work-holiday visa or au-pair reception). On arrival in Luxembourg, young “au pair” 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 pair” and also allows them to meet other au pairs. Learn more about au-pair.
As a contact organization in non-formal education, the SNJ organizes many leisure activities, including summer camps and colonies, as well as training 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 sites dedicated to young people, as well as the programs of activities and colonies or trainings.
