One of the main goals of the entire centre is to give the scouts of Rustavi space for their indoor and outdoor activities, and where the organization will have a permanent office to deal with the necessary everyday administrational work. It is the function of the new building to meet these requirements. Moreover, the centre shall serve other youth groups in Georgia, e.g. from the capital Tbilisi nearby, as a meeting place for special events (training courses, seminars, planning weekends, etc.). Besides this function, the International scout center Rustavi shall generate some income through the temporary rental of rooms to third parties, also hostel could host schools, universities and non-governmental organizations, which are looking for a place to organize their study weeks outside the usual (school) environment. Finally, tourists - individuals or groups - represent a third target group for the rental of rooms.
