DAS LIFT - Youth project
With weekly work assignments in various companies and accompanying training in social and interpersonal skills, the LIFT (Leistungsfähig durch individuelle Förderung und praktische Tätigkeit – high-performance through individual support and practical work experience) support programme prepares pupils from year 7 onwards for a career start after elementary school. Youngsters gain valuable experience in a new social environment. They become more confident, improve their social skills and grow their personalities. The programme increases opportunities for pupils from difficult backgrounds to find a place in the world of work and thus in society.
The LIFT youth project is open to students from all our schools. In weekly module lessons, youngsters are prepared for their assignment at a weekly work placement (WWP). The work placements, which last three months, take place on Wednesday afternoon and are remunerated with a small hourly wage.
