Education & Integration

ÖJAB works in myriad ways to promote individuals’ education and integration in order to improve their future prospects:

ÖJAB’s BPI (Berufspädagogisches Institut – Vocational Training Institute) offers primarily technical, business-related, and language-related vocational training designed to qualify young people and adults for employment, and it also provides both career orientation and help with getting integrated into the labor market. To this end, the BPI maintains its own workshops and workshop labs as well as a private school operating under public law (BPI Mödling). An additional ÖJAB initiative, AusbildungsFit, supports young people who face school-related, social, and/or personal difficulties. Altogether, ÖJAB provides qualifications to around 1,600 young people and adults each year, enabling them to find stable employment.

European cooperative projects facilitate international (further) training and networking. ÖJAB's European-level educational work stems from its early advocacy of a united Europe all the way back in the 1950s as well as its co-founding of “Europahaus” facilities.

Intercultural learning is further enabled by youth exchanges and projects involving Japan – with the YUAI Foundation in Tokyo (supported by Japan’s Hatoyama family) and with Kai-You-Kai in Wakayama.

Finally, displaced individuals can find a new home at ÖJAB residences and take advantage of educational and integration-related offerings.
