Recreational activities for young people
An overview of different hobby groups, activities in youth centres, youth programmes and other interesting opportunities for pupils in Tartu can be found in the publication “Youth recreational opportunities in Tartu 2016/2017”.
The information is provided in three languages. The foreign-language sections of the publication list partners willing to provide guidance in the corresponding language, in which case it is not necessary to speak Estonian to join in on the activity.
There are three city-owned and a number of private hobby schools operating in Tartu, many of which receive funding from the city. An overview of the hobby schools in Tartu can be found in the publication “Youth recreational opportunities in Tartu 2016/2017”.
Funding for private hobby schools
The City of Tartu supports private hobby schools providing recreational education for children and/or young people in Tartu by means of a capitation fee.
Private hobby schools must submit funding applications in the official state language. For this reason, refer to the Estonian version of the website for more information.
Confirmation of involvement in recreational activities
The City of Tartu supports the organisation of recreational activities in the fields of culture, sports and youth work on the basis of a capitation fee. In order to qualify for the allocation of a capitation fee, adult participants in or legal representatives of a minor participating in a recreational activity must confirm their involvement in the activities of a particular society or school. Engagement in recreational activities is generally confirmed in an Estonian-language online environment. Those interested can confirm their involvement in writing at the Department of Culture (Raekoja plats 12, 2nd floor).
