German Children and Youth Foundation – A joint initiative for the youth and the future

The German Children and Youth Foundation (GCYF) was established to do exactly that. The foundation provides children and young people the opportunity to reflect upon their own situations in life and enhance their active participation in society while at the same time inciting the necessary courage and self-confidence to do so. By identifying and developing programmes in which young people are supported and fostered, the GCYF has created the precondition for young people to perceive the challenges that arise from school, vocational training and work, as opportunities and not as threats. There are numerous models to take an example from. Have a look and help us to shape the future - today!
