Whether it be training in a sports club, after-school tuition or language courses, many leisure and additional programmes would not be possible without volunteers. Immigrants play a crucial role in this aspect of life.
The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees supports special projects to promote integration and to prevent violence and criminality among vulnerable young people and those who display anti-social behaviour.
The "Identity and Integration PLUS" course is aimed at ethnic German resettlers. The issues covered on the course include identity issues, challenges and opportunities in everyday life, and the German labour market.
