Who is the youth integration course aimed at?
The Youth Integration Course is designed for the specific needs, skills and interests of young adults. It comprises 900 lessons of language training and deals with topics which are of particular interest to the target group, such as career choice and preparation for a profession.
The target group is comprised of migrants under 27 who are no longer of school age. They speak little or no German so far, are currently attending a secondary school in Germany or want to complete an apprenticeship here. The contents were therefore specially tailored to the areas of interest of young adults. These are primarily:
- school and vocational training
- vocational orientation
- leisure activities
- family planning
- Language course
- Orientation course

General conditions of the youth integration course
To ensure an optimal course of instruction, the participants learn in small groups of no more than 20 people. Since the acquisition of a foreign language can be difficult at this age, the number of teaching hours allocated to language acquisition has been significantly increased compared to the standard integration course. These 900 teaching hours (45 minutes each) are followed by an orientation course of 100 teaching hours, as in every other integration course. In this course for young adults, there are sometimes particularly intensive teaching phases in which the participants are taught by two teachers at the same time.
Contents in the Orientation Course
The Orientation Course contains topics covering all relevant areas of daily life. These include:
- German, European and international history
Participants in the youth integration course learn the relevant vocabulary for important school subjects. This makes it easier for them to start an apprenticeship. At the same time, they get to know our school and training system, our labour market and several job profiles, including visits to companies. Some of these companies offer the young migrants internships for which they are prepared with job application training. Counselling institutions including the contact persons there are also introduced during the course.
