Prepared for Life! (Berge)
Description: The Brandenburg Youth Center is a development facility which offers underprivileged young people from 13 years onwards the opportunity to (re)integrate into society. They live in family-like structures and are being prepared for jobs through development programmes on ecological farming, ecological construction, kitchen work, and in a wood workshop. A seminar house, a multipurpose hall and various sports facilities are also part of the project. In addition there are trained horses for horse-based therapy for the young people who live at the Youth Center and for others from outside. The Workcamp is focused on the contact between the residents and the international volunteers. Therefore, the everyday life of the camp will be adapted to the youngsters and you will eat and work together.
