JuSt 2.0 – Jugend stärken im Quartier

Empower youth in the neighborhood

In the state capital of Schwerin young people are supported in finding a vocational training or a job through the federal model project “JUGEND STÄRKEN im Quartier”.

This project aims at young citizens of Schwerin in the age of 12 to 26 years, that need support in finding the way from school to labour market.

This support takes place in different forms: it could range from a one-time counseling to a longer, intensive process. We want to reach young people that are refusing school and need differentiated help. The goal here is to find the specific strengths of them and to build a tailored and individual integrational plan.

The municipality of Schwerin is coordinating this project and helps to strengthen the network of many different organisations that are engaged in this area.

The project is funded from 01.01.2019 until 30.06.2022 through the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSJ), the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community (BMI) and the European Social Fund.
