description of organisation

The goal of the organization is to make concepts for youth welfare institutions and to administrate them, to administrate child care institutions and to plan and provide educational offers in issues which range from pedagogical, psychological, school-, health- and job market-related matters to socio-political ones.

What we do
o Care for children and young people within the “Vollen Erziehung” (housing in a non-family environment according to the Styrian Youth Welfare Law) - Children’s Village
o Administration of a childcare institution (Kindergarten)
o placing offers for education

Target group of the Children’s Village
Children and young people in a state of social need, who cannot live in their original family and are therefore sheltered elsewhere by the youth welfare. These children and young people have made all kinds of negative experiences: use of force as an “educational tool” in the family, sexual abuse, alcohol abuse by their parents, lack of support in school issues, difficulties to learn, behavioural problems etc.
Due to the socialization conditions which are unfavourable to the development of the personality they are disadvantaged in many fields, such as personal development, integration in the school, ability to take part in group activities etc.
