The organisation: The youth centre Oberndorf has been founded in 1999 as an open meeting point for the local youth groups. The centre is the main meeting point in Oberndorf for the youth scene between 12 and 18 years. The average number of visitors is about 70 per opening. The young people coming to our centre are mainly from Oberndorf or neighbourhood. Target groups are beside the local youth scene especially disadvantaged and underprivileged youngsters as migrants, unemployed, and socially discriminated youngsters etc. With a mix of activities and regular opening hours, the youth center tries to support participation within the community of Oberndorf, to improve the integration status and to give shelter and backup when necessary. Further it wants to support useful leasure time activities.

The tasks we can offer cover a wide spectrum, especially through the cooperation in the local community. We will ask the volunteer to tell his/her expectations and goals at the beginning of the EVS project so that the team can help and support him/her.

The volunteer should be able to work independently and to be motivated to show his/her own initiative. The volunteer has to be motivated to work with youth.
