Welcome to R3 – Youth organisation for young immigrants and Roma youth
R3 Maahanmuuttajanuorten tuki ry (R3 Immigrant Youth Support Association) was founded in 2003 with the aim of improving the well-being of immigrant youth in Finland. We are dedicated to preventing marginalisation and social exclusion of young immigrants. At R3 everyone is welcome regardless of origin, identity, political views or religious faith – that's what R3 stands for: Respect, Rights and Responsibility.
At our premises in Myyrmäki we offer you free advice on accommodation, benefits & debts management, job search & CV writing, social relationships, health, hobbies and everything that concerns your personal wellbeing. Our staff strives to help you succeed in school, work and social life. We work closely with other professionals such as social workers, education practitioners and public social services. On top of that you will enjoy access to a robust network of our partner organisations that work with young immigrants.
