Zavod O, Zavod škofjeloške mladine was found by the Škofja Loka Students Club in 1999 when all the activities in the club became too numerous to manage in a strictly volunteer organisation and needed a more professional approach. Zavod O is a non-profit non-governmental and voluntary youth organization. The aim of all the activities is to raise the quality of life of Škofja Loka youth and also the quality of the local cultural and artistic program, IT and informal education.
The purpose of the activities is to create an environment for gaining practical experience, informal education. They encourage learning, volunteering and working mobility, and stimulate lifelong learning and intergenerational cooperation through various projects.
