Youth Organisations

Information on organisations for young people in Switzerland, including information on Scout and Guide groups...

There are many places to look for activities for young people including schools, colleges and tourist offices. The Geneva canton has a service for children aged 4 to 17, the SLJ (Service des Loisirs de la Jeunesse). It encourages and organises sports and cultural activities.

There are various Scouts and Girl Guides groups in Switzerland, for both teenagers and young kids. Jubla, Jugi, Blauring, Jungwacht (similar to Scouts, Guides and Brownies in anglophone countries) organise weekly meetings and events. Scouting for boys and girls is popular and there are English-speaking groups in the Geneva area, catering for youngsters up to the age of 18.
