Social integration of young people in Germany

Cooking, gardening, and carpentry activities in low-income neighborhoods in Frankfurt

The Air Liquide Foundation supports AWO Francfort in creating cooking, gardening, and carpentry activities for young people living in low-income neighborhoods in Frankfurt.

Youth centers in low-income neighborhoods in Frankfurt

Six AWO youth centers located in low-income neighborhoods in Frankfurt provide services for teenagers and young adults who have dropped out of school or are suffering from behavioral problems. Volunteers at these centers organize artistic or sporting activities, allowing participants to develop their talents and explore new interests. These young people also receive academic support and career counseling.

Development of cooking, gardening, and carpentry activities

Workshops on cooking, gardening, and carpentry will be offered in four youth centers: Hausen, Frankfurter Bogen, Gallus and Rödelheim. Workshop participants will be able to acquire new skills in these areas, as well as learn to work together as a team. These new skills will open up new career opportunities for them and help them gain self-confidence.

The Air Liquide Foundation's involvement

In order to make sure the workshops run smoothly, the Air Liquide Foundation has funded the purchase of an oven, two greenhouses, and carpentry tools for the four youth centers that will host these activities.
