Since more than 65 years the "CJD" (Christian Youth Village Foundation of germany) has been working with people with fewer opportunities in view of their integration into society and the employment market. Our Motto is "Let no one fall by the wayside" and "Everybody deserves a chance". Therefore we try to to develope personal skills an individual abilities to enable our target groups to cope with their personal "life path".
The holistic, educational concept of the CJD is rooted in the Christian view of men and based on four cour competences:
- Religious education: to provide guidance
- Fine-arts education: to discover one's creative potentials
- Political education: to understand democracy
- Sports/Health education: to strive not only physical fitness
The project "Let's jump togehther into life" in our centers in Versmold, Herten and Pritzwalk tries to increase the chances of young people with fewer opportunities and mental diseases to cope daily life and to get easier integrated into society and in the working market. Besides it supports a healthy life style, the exercise of outdoor activities, and cultural diversity because a great many of our trainees have a migrant background.
