description of organisation

Jugendwerk der AWO Württemberg is a non-profit NGO with the focus on nonformal education for young people. The main objectif is to support young people in their process of personal development and education outside of school and university, i.e. to improve social, educational, (inter)cultural and other skills and competences. We organise holiday camps for young people between 6 and 20 years old, seminars in nonformal education, youth travel, international youth work ( youth exchanges, support measures and EVS) and coordination of local projects and groups for young people between 15 and 28 years old. The main principles of our work are to improve tolerance, solidarity, self-determination and democracy within the young people and in our society. The organisation is led by a volunteer committee aged 20 to 29 and there are nine paid employees. Als freier Träger der Kinder und Jugendhilfe organisiert das Jugendwerk Ferienmaßnahmen für Kinder und Jugendliche von 6 bis 20 Jahren, außerdem außerschulische Bildungsangebote und Workshops sowie interkulturelle Begegnungen und Projekte für Jugendliche von 15 bis 27 Jahren. Ein Schwerpunkt der Arbeit liegt auf der Partizipation und Persönlichkeitsbildung junger Menschen. Die Angebote richten sich bewusst auch an Kinder und Jugendliche aus sozial benachteiligten Verhältnissen und an junge Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund. Der Bereich internationaler Jugendaustausch und die interkulturelle Arbeit werden als Arbeitsschwerpunkt ausgebaut. Seit 2009 ist eine Bildungsreferentin zu 75% für den Bereich internationale und interkulturelle Jugendarbeit eingestellt, seit 2012 zudem eine Assistentin mit 50% im Bereich Betreuuung und Koordinierung EVS.Das Jugendwerk möchte Jugendliche durch seine Arbeit dazu befähigen, ihre kognitiven, emotionalen und sozialen Fähigkeiten zu entfalten und weiter zu entwickeln, um als selbstbestimmte Persönlichkeiten ihre Aufgaben in Familie, Beruf und Gesellschaft zu erfüllen, an der Gestaltung des gesellschaftlichen Lebens mitzuwirken und ihre Interessen und Rechte wahrzunehmen.
