Volta is a cultural youth center, music stage and music school in Amsterdam-West. Volta is located near the east exit of the Westerpark, on the Houtmankade.

Volta is part of a non-profit organisation, and organises activities for local young people, from ages eight up to about twenty five.

The Volta building consists of a concert hall, a rehearsal studio, several spaces for lessons and a sport/dance studio.

Volta offers young participants cheap rehearsal space and equipment, music courses and a stage for young starting musicians to play their debut concerts on. Volta also hosts dance and sports lessons for kids.
