Support for young people in difficult circumstances


The target group of support for hard-to-reach young people are young people between the ages of 15 and 25 who are not or temporarily not reached by the social benefit systems. These young people are socially disadvantaged or individually impaired and are therefore unable to find a job or training place or apply for basic social security benefits.

As part of the funding, you can support these young people in difficult life situations by providing them with additional support, initiating educational processes and helping them to find out about and apply for basic social security benefits.

The individual problems of young people and their causes are very complex.

Examples can be

  • lack of school-leaving qualifications
  • No job/training place
  • Deficits in terms of social skills, motivation, resilience and key qualifications
  • (impending) homelessness
  • Family conflicts
  • difficult biographical histories (growing up in a foster family/group home or in families with entrenched long-term unemployment)
  • Financial problems/debt
  • health or addiction problems

In order to reach these young people, possible support services must also be individually tailored, for example to
stabilize their financial situation

  • provide support when applying for social benefits, such as unemployment benefit II
  • help them find accommodation or stabilize their housing situation
  • assist with visits to the authorities
  • introduce them to therapeutic treatments
  • to help build up social networks
  • support the development of work and social behavior or learning and educational readiness
  • prepare for catching up on school qualifications and finding a job or apprenticeship.

In principle, services of this kind are primarily provided by other social service providers (e.g. youth welfare services). As a certified training provider, you can therefore only receive funding if similar offers from these priority social service providers do not exist locally and do not have to be provided as a priority.

Funding can be publicly advertised by the Jobcenter or provided as project funding in accordance with grant law. In the case of project funding, the project must be limited in terms of time and content; institutional funding is not possible.

You have no legal claim to the funding.

These young people are socially disadvantaged or individually impaired and are therefore unable to find a job or training place or to apply for basic security benefits.

As part of the funding, you can support these young people in difficult life situations by giving them an additional opportunity to accompany them, initiating educational processes and helping them to get to know and apply for basic security benefits.

The individual problems of young people and their causes are very complex.

Examples can be:

  • lack of school-leaving qualifications
  • no job/apprenticeship
  • Deficits in terms of social competence, motivation, resilience and key qualifications
  • (threatening) Homelessness
  • family conflicts
  • difficult biographical trajectories (growing up in a foster family/residential group or in families with entrenched long-term unemployment)
  • financial problems/debts
  • health or addiction problems

In order to be able to reach these young people, possible support services must also be individually targeted, for example:
stabilize the financial situation

  • to assist in applying for social benefits, such as citizen's allowance
  • to support the search for accommodation or stabilization of the housing situation
  • to accompany them when dealing with the authorities
  • to introduce therapeutic treatments
  • help build social networks
  • to support the development of work and social behaviour or willingness to learn and educate
  • to prepare them for catching up on school-leaving qualifications and taking up work or training places.

In principle, services of this kind are primarily provided by other social service providers (e.g. youth welfare). As a certified educational institution, you can therefore only receive funding if similar offers from these priority social service providers do not exist locally and do not have to be provided as a priority.

The funding can be publicly advertised by the job center or as project funding according to funding law. Project funding must be a project limited in time and content, institutional funding is not possible.

There is no legal entitlement to the funding.
