A center for children and teenagers

At the core, Vopnabúrið is a gym and leisure centre that helps children and teenagers to gain a better balance within the school, home and social life. With an array of counseling- and support interviews, spokesman service, leisure, exercise, and feedback to authorities.

The work is fundamentally a sociological, behavioral science, empowerment, problem-solving, and networking platform where a guide to self-help is most important. Co-operation with the person and giving the person autonomy is vital, where they can take their own decisions to affect their own lives.
