Information System

Child and Youth Services in Germany

The online platform 'Information System Child and Youth Services in Germany' explains the system of child and youth services in Germany in an easily accessible and commented form. The version available at https://kinder-jugendhilfe.info has been completely revised and redesigned. The content of the Information System was revised in cooperation with selected experts from science and practice in child and youth services. In addition to the online presentation of the contents, it is also possible to download them: both as PowerPoint presentations and in PDF form. The platform is multilingual; in addition to English, a Russian and a Hebrew version are currently in the works.

Use for international expert dialogue

The Information System is to be understood as an instrument for use both in the national context and in the international expert dialogue in youth services, youth work and youth policy. It is aimed at experts working in Germany as well as for the international expert dialogue in the fields of youth services, youth work and youth policy. It serves as a scientifically sound information and working tool.

Structure of the Information System

A brief introductory section explains the fields covered by child and youth services. The tool goes on to outline three specific thematic areas that define Germany’s child and youth services system:

In particular, the results of the reform process of the Eighth Social Code are also depicted.

The information system is funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
