It began as an idea. Quickly after it’s articles of association were signed the fledgling organization “Rääma Noorte Ühing Noorus” quickly began to organize. It started with different activity groups like weight lifting, chess, literature, sports, and gymnastics. Later language and other educational courses were taught. A prestigious library came from the organization. There also came the choir, as Estonian fashion would dictate. The organisation became the talk of the town and even of the whole country. Those associated with Rääma Noorte Ühing Noorus were known to be well educated and had a notable reputation.

Nooruse Maja was built in 1935 as a clubhouse by Rääma Noorte Ühing Noorus. Sadly much of the activities were halted at the soviet occupation, but when the NGO Rääma Noorte Ühing Noorus was re-established in 1998 then the city government of Pärnu accepted the movement. Despite of the break of legal regularity it gave the building for Youth Organization to manage in January 2000.

Today, close to a thousand people have gathered under the roof of Rääma Noorte Ühing Noorus, to participate in different organizations, clubs, NGOs and associations to spend their free time, and to educate themselves.
