British Flair 2019

“250,000 young people in Germany between 18 and 25 years of age are unemployed. 48,000 pupils leave school every year without any leaving qualification. In Hamburg alone, 2,600 pupils end the 10th grade without any perspective of a job or career. At the same time there are 3,300 vacant apprenticeships per year in Hamburg.

The MUT Academy gives Hamburg pupils from a challenging environment the courage to achieve a school leaving certificate and to move on into professional life. For the past two years we have accompanied young people in the transition period from school to a vocation. In 5-day “MUT Camps” (Courage Camps), seminars and through a mentoring programme we convey to them a dynamic self-perception and self-efficacy. Building on successive tests of courage, the participants experience visible learning achievements in life-relevant competences. This encourages their self-confidence and motivates them to take their life into their own hands. The journey is supported by lots of fun and a powerful community.

With the proceeds of this year’s tombola we hope to directly finance the participation of selected young people (a life-changing scholarship costs approx. 5,000 €).”
