Putting people first: providing security, creating opportunities, embracing change

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.
