The aim of the ERGO foundation "Youth & Future" is to encourage young people and to support them in discovering their potential and shaping their future themselves. An important instrument is the foundation's own job locomotive project.
Impetus through job locomotive
The Hamburg project "Job locomotive" is the focus of the foundation's agenda. For more than 15 years, the foundation has been successfully preparing disadvantaged young people in qualified manner for working life through this low-threshold offer. Young people receive support in the development of professional perspectives and help towards helping themselves, so that they can successfully pursue their professional career.
"Training prize" for regional initiatives
In the summer of 2014, the foundation awarded its one-off training prize to young but very effective training innovations. These were initiatives that are already moving a great deal and whose approaches offer potential for development. The aim of the advancement award was to provide the chosen projects with the necessary "development aid", in order to offer an inter-regional perspective.
