The local youth department with the focus on open youth work (two youth centers and streetwork): We support young people (focus group 12-19) to find their way in life, to give them a place to spend their free time in a relaxed, creative or sportive way. In Telfs we have two youth centers, Chilli and Fuchsbau, with five youth workers and a team of two streetworkers. The whole team aims at offering an interesting program for young people, so that they can collect new learning experiences. The youth centers have opening hours – in the afternoon/evening – in which the teenagers can come and go as they like. It’s an open space without any obligation for the youngsters. The youth centers offer a soccer ground, various games, a dance/boxing room, kitchen/bar and a own recording studio. Also, there are some extra activities around sports, education, music, creativity and so on. The youth work team is very motivated and open-minded. You will have great opportunities here to bring in ideas.
