Kreisjugendwerk der AWO Karlsruhe-Stadt

description of organisation

The ‘Kreisjugendwerk’ (KJW) of the AWO Karlsruhe-Stadt is the nonprofit children’s and youth organisation of the AWO.
As an independent organisation for child and youth work, the ‘Kreisjugendwerk’ of the AWO Karlsruhe-Stadt organises leisure activities for children and young people between the ages of 6 and 20 years, extracurricular education and workshops, as well as intercultural encounters and projects for young people and young adults between 15 and 27 years of age. One focus of our work is participation and personal development. Our activities are also deliberately offered to children and young people from socially disadvantaged backgrounds and to young people with a migration background. The areas international youth exchange and intercultural work are currently being extended.
With its work, the KJW wants to enable young people to realise and further develop their cognitive, emotional and social skills, in order to be able to fulfil their tasks in work, family and society as a self-determined person, to be actively involved in creating social life, and to exercise their interests and rights.

Participants with fewer opportunities

  • This organisation has additional mentoring or other support suitable for young people with social obstacles, educational difficulties, cultural differences or similar.
  • Other experience, infrastructure and resources:

    As a youth organisation dealing with intercultural youth work and nonformal education we have the capacity to integrate people with other cultural and educational backgrounds, as we have professional skilled employees who are trained to cope with such situations. In principle, we aim to focus on the personal requirements and needs of every volunteer. Our Youth Office Center can partly cater for disabled people. With dedicated equipment, we could host physically or visually disabled people. In our daily work, we have experience with youngsters with special needs. Our aim is to give opportunities to those people missing them in their lives and to create a good mixture within the diverse group of our volunteers. The European Volunteers will work in different teams at the Jugendwerk and will have regular meetings with his/her tutor and the responsible people at the Jugendwerk, so he/she will have support and assistance when required.
