Activity description

The association “Open Youth and Cultural Work Bregenz” (OJKA Bregenz) organizes and operates demand-oriented youth work in the entire social landscape of Bregenz. The offers are aimed at all young people between the ages of eleven and 25, regardless of their biological or social gender, class, ideology, religious affiliation, nationality, language or state of health. Our work functions as a mouthpiece for the needs of young people and a place of socialization for young people. That is why we create social and cultural spaces in which young people can develop their identity, personality and relationships. Volunteers have the opportunity to participate in our various youth services, different projects that are developed and carried out in a participatory manner with the youngsters; topics are for example: democracy, anti-racism, gender sensitive youth work, health and wellbeing, food + cooking, urban gardening, street work, sports, art projects, outdoor activities, and lots more.
