Pionirski dom Centre for Youth Culture, which has been in operation since 1963, is a public institute in the field of culture and a leading institution in the field of extracurricular activities.
Pionirski dom is one of the leading institutions in the field of extracurricular activities for children, youth and adults. Over the span of some decades, almost one hundred thousand children and adolescents have taken part in a variety of creative and educational programmes. During the decades of its work, Pionirski dom Centre for Youth Culture has had a significant influence on the promotion of education and active engagement of children and youth in the cultural-artistic and linguistic-cultural fields.
The organisation of courses, clubs, workshops, seminars and other forms of activities for children, young people and teachers, the establishment of libraries and reading rooms, the organisation and care for bringing enjoyment to the lives of young people by organizing dances, theatre, film and other performances, the study of the organization and methods of teaching aimed at children and youth, the cooperation and exchange in the field of education of children and youth – all of these are part of the essential mission of Pionirski dom and have had a major influence in the development of children and youth both in the Ljubljana region and beyond.
Almost one hundred thousand children and adolescents have so far assured themselves that tradition and quality are our guides in creating and carrying out diverse and content-rich programmes.
Our institute will continue to develop as a competent and responsible institution that will encourage and guide young people in learning and education, with the aim to enable them to spend their leisure time creatively and to learn languages and cultures of Europe and the world.
