Youth work

Service Description

Youth work promotes the development of young people's personalities and prepares them for life in the community. It helps them to recognize, respect and experience values and strengthens their ability to act on their own responsibility. Youth work ties in with the interests of young people and is co-determined by them.

Youth work is an independent part of youth welfare. It fulfills the educational tasks according to § 11 of the Child and Youth Welfare Act (KJHG) and stands up for the concerns and interests of young people in public.
