"Job Action Project"

An eventful and exciting year has come to an end.

In December, the number of participants remained at ten. Throughout the year, we supported 24 young people in the Job Action programme. Four young people were placed in an apprenticeship and three participants were placed in employment subject to social insurance contributions. Four participants have started a language or integration course and five young people are being taken on to the follow-up project.


The "Job Action" project in cooperation with the Donnersberg forestry office was divided into two sub-projects. The first sub-project "Repair, restructuring and upgrading of the adventure playground" was completed in August. September saw the start of the second sub-project "Repair and family-friendly upgrading of the forest action trail in Dannenfels". The signposting for the hiking trails was completed and installed. The hiking trail is now adorned with a little squirrel that shows visitors the way. 

A great deal was achieved together with the young people throughout the year and they can be very proud of themselves.


We will start the 2024 project in the new year - we are already looking forward to it and to working with the Celtic village on the Donnersberg.

The socio-educational counsellors worked with the participants on many individual problems, which were tackled together as part of the support planning.  These included mental and physical illnesses, debts, language barriers and everyday and social skills.

We would like to thank the Donnersberg forestry office and the local community of Dannenfels for the uncomplicated and successful cooperation and the good working relationship. 
We would also like to thank the Donnersbergkreis job centre and all other network partners for their excellent cooperation.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a good start to the New Year!

"Job Action Project"

In November, the number of participants in our project was ten young people, so five places are still vacant.

The participants continued to work diligently on the measure. For example, the balance beam was built and installed for the implementation of the "Forest Adventure Trail Subproject".

Preparations were made for the longest bench on the Donnersberg and the bench was cut to size.

Determining the individual stations in the forest was a task and the plans for the signposts and the display board were finalised. The display cases were equipped with laminated game instructions.

Together, we attended the 2nd employment summit in Rockenhausen on 24 November 2023, initiated by the Donnersberg district administration.

The participants took the opportunity to exchange ideas with various companies in the region and gather information. A possible internship for a participant in the new year was already discussed.

As part of the socio-pedagogical support, many individual case interviews took place again this month. This also included support with job searches and application processes.

One project participant was successfully placed in an internship.

"Job Action" project

In October, the number of participants was eight young people, so there are seven vacant places.One participant left due to taking up a job, one participant left due to taking up an integration language course, one participant left due to health problems and one participant left due to lack of cooperation.

Work on the forest adventure trail has begun with the first maintenance measures along the trail and the first paths and squares have been cut free with the brush cutter.

In the wood workshop, the participants made display boxes. These will later serve as game instructions, which will be set up along the trail. The games can then be implemented directly on site with natural materials from the forest. One of the tasks for the showcases was to cut and paint the wood. The next task was to cut and deburr the Plexiglas panes to fit exactly. The boxes were then put together.

One participant has written and designed the game instructions for the showcases on the PC. These are laminated and made available to the visitors in the showcase.

Furthermore, the team installed the missing roof on the slide at the adventure playground.

On the part of the socio-educational support, talks were held with the job centre and support plan talks were held on a case-by-case basis. In addition, further individual application folders were worked on with the participants, they cooperated with selected internship companies and the young people were accompanied during the internship.

After the holiday season, everyone came back in a good mood and relaxed. Starting with new forces now the sub-project "Forest Adventure Trail". At the beginning, we started the forest adventure trail with the participants and "examined" the different stations together and tried it out. In this context, initial ideas were collected as to which stations need to be renewed and how the forest adventure trail can be revalued.

Since we welcomed some new participants in September, a lot has been done in the workshop. Here, the young people learned how to use tools and the processing of the wood, all the others were able to share their knowledge in this unit deepen and consolidate.

The training sessions also started again in September, here everything was under the motto "Autumn".
