Welcome to the Navigaattori!

Navigaattori is a place where you can find professional help for finding a job or education options in Kuopio. We also help with everyday issues. You don’t need an appointment or letter from another worker, just come to the Navigaattori whenever you feel like it!

For people between 15 and 29, Ohjaamo is there to help. Adults over 30 have their own guidance and counselling service. And if you’re an immigrant of any age, the immigrant guidance and counselling services are for you. It doesn’t matter why or how long you’ve been in in Finland for, we’re here to answer your questions

We’ve got a wide network of service-providers and together with them we’ll work on helping you. Lack of Finnish skills is not a problem. We speak English as well and if needed we can get an interpreter in your own language. All services are free of charge.
