Earlier this month, a department from the Danish Federation of Social Educators had a meeting in Berlin and took the opportunity to also visit a German home, Jugendwohnhaus, for young people of 14 – 18 years.
The Danish group found the visit very inspiring. It was interesting to see how each social pedagogue works systematically but also very individually with each young person – who is often in a difficult situation both personally and socially. Jugendwohnhaus is a relatively small place and the whole staff are educated social pedagogues which ads a strong, common professional approach and spirit and understanding of how to work with the young people.
Thanks to the staff at Jugendwohnhaus, especially to Tony Leidenberger, for receiving the Danish guests. Maybe this has inspired the Germans to pay their Danish colleagues a visit. Also thanks to German AIEJI board member, Heike Beerman, for providing relevant contacts in Germany.
