JOBLINGE – “Joining forces to address youth unemployment”
The vision of the JOBLINGE initiative is to make a visible and sustainable contribution to the fight against youth unemployment. This objective is pursued by mobilizing the strongest social powers under JOBLINGE and bundling different competencies to enable disadvantaged, unemployed youths earn themselves a job or apprenticeship. “Helping people to help themselves” is thus at the centre of Joblinge’s concept, which aims to demonstrate an innovative and transferable path to the solution of social challenges.
- JOBLINGE is a six-month programme targeting challenged youth who have left high school and are having difficulty securing a full-time job
- The programme rests on two key pillars: practical, applicable real-world experience and one-on-one mentoring
- The goal of the programme is to make a measurable contribution to the sustainable reduction of youth unemployment in Germany
