description of organisation

The charitable culture and youth organization „Culture Factor Y“ is a youth centre with multiple and varied offers for children and adolescent. The most important part of our work is the „open house“ for our visitors. Contacts between the youth and the professional youth(social)workers are established there. For our visitors we create the opportunity to approach their personal requests and interest in the form of a „visitor-assembly“, so the visitors are involved in creating the program of our work. The organization consists of a main building with varied offers and four decentralized areas of work.



The main house (Amann-Fitz-Straße)



The „open house“ and a few other offers for young people in the age of 16 to 25 years are offered here. Our Job and qualification training scheme is also offered in this house. This project offers young people who are searching for employment a medium-term job and helps them to find an employment in the first job market.



Decentralized youth centre (Maria-Theresien-Straße)



This place is a meeting point for young people in the age of 11 to 16 years. Four times per week in the afternoon we create the opportunity for child-appropriate free time activities. We also try to help them finding solutions in difficult life-situations.



Decentralized youth centre for girls



This is an important place only for girls. Boys and men are not allowed to visit this house. Girls in the age of 11 to 16 spend their free time there. According to the motto „to be by themselves“ young girls are enjoying their free time there.



Mobile youth work



Youth(social)workers establish contacts to the adolescent in public places. The focus of this type of work is the work on relationships to the youth. It is the aim to find out their needs and interests. Like we do it in all types of our work the professionals support the young people in problematic situations and offer help for self-help.



German-language-support (Hannes-Grabher-Siedlung)



The „Hannes-Grabher-Siedlung“ is a big social housing development in Lustenau. More than 400 people live there. Two times per week in the afternoon social education workers help children in the age of 4 to 10 years with their homework. The main emphasis is the German-language-support for the children.
