Since the early 80s, young refugees have been coming to Germany from war and crisis zones, especially in big cities like Berlin. At the same time, people from different countries immigrate to Germany to live and work here.
These people are confronted with everyday racism, bureaucratic and legal hurdles and need care and support.
Unfortunately, looking after young refugees and migrants is still a marginal issue in youth welfare and social work.
The BBZ has been working in this field for decades and supports people from numerous countries. In line with the principles of participatory youth work, the BBZ tries to give refugees and migrants equal access to social resources such as education and work through advice and support.
