During the process of individualisation the youngsters have become responsible for creating their own course of life, making their own choices and forming their own biographys. This is is the reason why they are encouraged to spend their free time in a quality manner, from which they can also benefit in a form of informal studying. Youngsters are being advised to use their teenage years to discover their own opportunities, learn social skills, get new experiences and participate in activities that will help them upon entering the world of adults. Youth centres are therefore one of the forms of youth networking within a society and are the point of interest in my disertation. They are also a place where youngsters can receive informal education, improve their skills organisation, decision-making skills and learn to collaborate together, all while actively participating in the society and collaborating with the local environment. In the experimental part of my desertation I was identifying the needs of youngsters in our municipality, how they spend their free time and what free-time activities can they choose from. I researched the working areas of youth politics and whether the youngsters feel the need for a youthe centre, and also if there are any chances of establishing a youth centre in the municipality. I connected my findings to different cases of good practice from two youth centres. I found out that the area of youth politics is not well defined in this specific municipality and that the activities that are offered are not very diverse. Contrary to the beliefs of the municipality officials, the majority of youngsters does feel the need for a youth centre.
