About Me

ÖJAB (Österreichische JungArbeiterBewegung/Austrian Young Workers Movement) is a non-profit organisation, which provides students and youths with a home at their place of education, offers in-patient and mobile care and engages in the fields of education, integration, refugee relief and development cooperation.

Four main areas of operation:

Students & Youth
In 23 dormitories, ÖJAB offers young people high-quality, economically priced accommodation located near their education and training institutes. Dormitories from ÖJAB are located in Vienna, Graz, Salzburg, Eisenstadt, Krems, Mödling and Bad Gleichenberg.

Senior citizens & Care
Three residences provide a home with professional and tender care for seniors. The needs of the residents are taken into consideration sensitively. The ÖJAB nursing homes are open for everybody regardless of their financial situation. Also independent seniors without care need enjoy living there: they appreciate the medical security, good food and the company in the house and know that later it will be possible for them to be cared for without having to ;
ÖJAB home care offers care and support service for people who are not living in a seniors residence.

Education & Integration
BPI of ÖJAB (VET-Institute for professional training and development of ÖJAB) is a private school which is run by ÖJAB and officially recognised by the Austrian authorities. The school focuses primarily on technical, business and language vocational training, vocational orientation and job market integration support in Mödling (lower Austria) and Vienna.
In the “Produktionsschulen” (vocational schools) ÖJAB supports disadvantaged youths and contributes to their integration significantly. Altogether, ÖJAB qualifies around youths and adults each year in order to help them find their way to a regular working life.

Development cooperation
The focus of ÖJAB´s development cooperation is on Burkina Faso (West Africa) and on the technical vocational training.
In the capital Ouagadougou ÖJAB has a representative office and engages in different projects improving the living conditions of local people.
