At the house there are two different flats, one for children up to the age of 13 and the other one for teenagers until their 18th birthday.These two flats are supported by a team of 10 social pedagogues that is taking care of these kids and their daily routine. Their work is focused on working with siblings as well as their so families at home. Another focus is on experimental pedagogics combined with weekly sports activities like soccer, basketball or karate. There are currently 2 volunteers (Austrian voluntary service, civil service) supporting the team at NOWO 21.Another project at this house is the garden as an option to offer little outdoor projects for the kids ("grow your own food", "build a shelter or a tree house", ...).The volunteers will be part of the daily routine and they will also have their own little projects. The team leaders will be mentoring the volunteers in every part of their projects.AKs Noah works with children with fewer opportunities, they are dealing with different situation of social exclusion.
