VAJA Bremen

The Verein zur Förderung akzeptierender Jugendarbeit e.V. was established in 1992. It engages in outreach youth work, i.e. streetwork, and is the largest organisation in Bremen doing so. Seven teams working in this field, a youth community centre, two advisory centres and school social work, supplement the work of the VAJA.

The association primarily targets juveniles who are not adequately reached by youth welfare, or who have become unreachable by such services, who define themselves as cliques or "scenes" and for whom public spaces have become the central sphere of activity and the place to be. VAJA’s outreach approach re-establishes contact with juveniles who have become marginalised.
The association has focussed particularly on combating right-wing extremism and Islamist extremism, enabling it to fall back on a wealth of experience in this field. This also makes it a major local partner for the Advice Centre on Radicalisation at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. Vaja has formed part of the network in Bremen with the "kitab" advice centre since 2012.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
