"For more than fifty years we have been working to integrate migrants. We develop integration programmes, focusing particularly on working with adolescents and parents, helping them to gain a foothold as apprentices and in the job market. All this is done in close cooperation with migrant organisations."

Our target groups

  • We develop integration programmes and offer qualifications, focusing particularly on working with adolescents and partens helping them to gain a foothold as apprentices and in the job market. All this is done in close cooperation with migrant organisations.
  • We support migrants with an academic background, thus enabling them to start or continue studying at a German university.
  • We give advice regarding degrees and qualifications obtained abroad and help individuals find an appropriate job.
  • We open up perspectives for young migrants in society and the professional sector.
  • We establish networks for immigrants, entrepreneurs with and without a migrational background, and local business partners to promote the idea of dual apprenticeships.
  • We conduct projects that support the social acceptance of migrants, reduce xenophobia and obviate radicalisation.
  • We offer qualifications for young people in Middle and Eastern European countries who commit themselves to working with German minorities.
