CJD youth village for Offenburg draws positive interim results for education chain for over a half year professional entry-level attendants of CJD engage youth village Offenburg to Ortenauer schools. The first interim results consistently positive: 25 eighth graders are achieved and permanently accompanied.

Parents and teachers, but also various facilities and regional businesses support the project. Melanie Krauss and Andrea Sanger feel today as an integral part of the schools. The CJD employees are on the road since December 2010 on three Ortenauer schools: Georg-Sina-Schule and Astrid-Lindgren-Schule in Offenburg, Germany, as well as the Wilhelm-pipe-Schule in Freistett. There, they accompany a total of 25 pupils and students, who have difficulty in school and completing is at risk.
“It has started very well. The young people feel taken seriously and have already now much better performances from their Professional and way of life”, is the first conclusion of the two professional entry-level attendants. The supervised eighth graders could now take a career test, as well as at least an internship. For example, a progress was that they now be much more targeted and timely prepare your internship, so Melanie Krauss. Also the young people in the meantime learned about their professional advisors as well as visited the vocational information fair and professional information centre of the employment agency. As important and particularly effective element of their work, the professional entry-level attendants call the great willingness of parents and teachers to work together, as well as the numerous collaborations, such as youth clubs, associations or with the school of social work: “This gives us a broader picture of the individual young people.
So we can draw much better their views on existing strengths and weaknesses.” Also positive to see are the many educational partnerships with renowned companies of such as Meiko Maschinenbau GmbH and Co.KG, Deutsche Post Offenburg, hotel Sun Offenburg, Germany. That the demand in the initial counselling is very large, was already set at the beginning of the project. Seats are available only for a limited number of pupils. The funded youth accompanied now continue, up to the end of the 9th grade. Then it goes for them on a secondary school or in a training relationship. And even in their first year of training, young people find the familiar point of contact. The new school year in September then more pupils and students the opportunity to participate in the initial counselling will receive. The project “Initial counselling education chain” takes place on behalf of the employment agency and youth village for Offenburg and youth professional Ortenau e.V. is carried out by the consortium of CJD.
