Mladinski EPI center Piran (part of Športni in mladinski center Piran) is a youth centre in the coast of Slovenia.
The youth centre aims to provide young people living or going to school in the Municipality of Piran with the following: 

  • a safe place where they can spend their free time 
  • organized extracurricular activities (theatre, language clubs, arts etc.) 
  • support and guidance 
  • help with homework and studying 
  • international youth exchanges 
  • volunteering opportunities 
  • career orientation activities and more.

The youth that we usually work with are between 9 and 19 years old, but with different activities and projects (for example volunteering, internships, a summer festival) we try to involve all young people.

The staff consists of 5 youth workers and some local and european volunteers.
