Mission Statement

According to the concept of lifeworld orientation all people shape their lifeworlds with their own experiences. As a result, they are experts in these worlds. We use this knowledge and the instrument of the dialogue to develop reasonable and resource-oriented solutions for everyday problems.

We face our clients with respect, appreciation and an empathic attitude. Our organisation “Jugend und Lebenswelt” encourages a self-determined life. Diversity, intercultural collaboration and gender-sensitive work are important values. Our work induces a constructive interaction between individuals, groups and systems.

We are experts in the field of adolescents and their environments. Groups we work with are:

  • teenagers, adolescents and young adults
  • institutions and organisations working with adolescents
  • politicians
  • communities

Our main competences are social work, social education and socio-cultural animation. We meet challenges with flexibility, quality, stability and a healthy process of growth, economically and personally speaking.

The organisation “Jugend und Lebenswelt” helps shape social work in Lower Austria and supports the contact with university students by providing internships and offering a professional discourse.
