Current Projects


“MOVE, WORK, CHANGE!” is a joint project organised by the IB Süd in cooperation with the local job agencies in Reutlingen and Tübingen. The project takes place from Juli 2014 until January 2019. It is aimed at young adults aged between 18 and 27 who are experiencing difficulty accessing the training or labour market.

The “MOVE, WORK, CHANGE!” project is part of the IdA program which is sponsored by the European Social Fund and the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.

The two-month assignments take place in Malmö/Sweden and Sevilla/Spain. The internships provide the participants with guidelines for their future career as well as international work experience.

The preparations for the assignment in a foreign country takes place over a period of 8 weeks, during which the participants receive language lessons, intercultural training and mobility training, study the culture of the foreign country and attend various workshops and skills training sessions to prepare them for the assignment.

During their time abroad the participants improve their professional, language and social skills, prove their flexibility and mobility and consequently improved their chances of finding a suitable job, apprenticeship or traineeship on return to Germany.

After the participants returned, the project invites them to review their experiences and the development of their professional, intercultural and social skills; the results are recorded in a “Europass Mobility”. The project team supports and monitors the young adults in the development of potential career prospects and during the job application process.

Until 2019, 76 young adults will have the chance to take part in international mobility projects “MOVE, WORK, CHANGE!”.

KooBO – Kooperative Berufsorientierung

The European Social Fund (ESF) of Baden-Württemberg is administered by several state ministries and thus finances via central and regional calls different measures for fostering employment and educational opportunities. The focus of IB within the ESF Baden-Württemberg lies on supporting various target groups in their transition from school to employment.


The ESF project “KooBO – Cooperative Vocational Orientation” is carried out by IB Süd (in cooperation with IB Baden), taking place in the school districts of Stuttgart, Böblingen, Ludwigsburg and Pforzheim. In collaboration with companies and local job agencies, students are enabled to acquire vocational orientation, skills and practical experience through their own projects. KooBO started in June 2015; projects within this programme have been developed and realised by students since the beginning of the school year 2015/2016. 




Neue Chancen 2.0

Neue Chancen 2.0 ("New Prospects 2.0")


The regional ESF project "Neue Chancen 2.0" ("New Prospects 2.0") in Heilbronn spans over two years (2016/2017). It ensures constant, successful work at the transition from school to employment.            

The project fostered skills for successful school graduation and for the integration in vocational training and work. Thereby different, target group specific modules for VET (Vocational Education & Training) participants are offered, for example personality coaching, creative-social activities or occupational skills and learning strategies - e.g. supervised labour at a horse ranch. Some parts of the project are carried out in cooperation with the "Wir sind stark!" ("We are strong!") programme.

Vocational Orientation Programme


IB’s vocational orientation measures aim at providing early vocational orientation and fostering core skills to help ensure seamless transitions from school to the world of work. The objective is to offer to school pupils a vocational orientation process that will enable them to develop a realistic idea of their own abilities and interests and to gather practical experience in a variety of occupational fields.


The Vocational Orientation Programme consists of an analysis of potential and competences, which usually takes place during the second half of Year 7, and of workshops in Year 8. The analysis of potential enables pupils to arrive at an initial assessment of their own predispositions and competences. Following this, the two-week workshops provide them with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with at least three occupational fields.



The Vocational Orientation Programme is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) with the programme „BOP“ as well as by the State Ministry for Economic Affairs and Labour with the programme „ProBeruf“ („ProVocation“).


IB Süd conducts such programmes since 2008, currently in five regions: Asperg, Böblingen, Eislingen, Tübingen/Reutlingen and Ulm. In eight locations, a variety of the programme is also offered for young refugees, adding extra information on the German vocational education and training system.

aktiF – aktiv integrativ – Frauen im Verein

“aktiF” is a pilot project for the integration of girls and women with refugee or migration background, especially from Arabic countries, into gymnastics and sports associations of the STB (Schwäbischer Turnerbund).

Within the project, pilot associations are advised, supported and accompanied on their way to intercultural opening. Through further education the associations are strengthened in their intercultural competences and linked with actors from the field of integration and refugee work on a local scale.

“aktiF” started in July 2016 with a duration of two years. The joint project of the Internationaler Bund e.V. (IB) and the Schwäbischer Turnerbund e.V. (STB) is funded by the Federal Ministry of the Interior within the federal programme “Zusammenhalt durch Teilhabe” (Solidarity through Participation).

Extrem? - ohne uns!

Das Projekt "Extrem? - ohne uns!" gefördert durch die Robert Bosch Stiftung, sensibilisiert Jugendliche für die extremen Tendenzen in unserer Gesellschaft. Der Fokus wird dabei vor allem auf Rechtspopulismus und -extremismus, sowie islamistischen Extremismus und die damit verbundenen Gefahren gelegt.
Die Jugendlichen werden durch kreative partizipative Formen wie z.B. die Erstellung eines Projektblogs eingebunden und tragen so wesentlich zum Gelingen bei. Die Teilnehmenden beschäftigen sich mit verschiedenen thematischen Schwerpunkten ausgehend von den Erfahrungen aus ihrem persönlichen Umfeld. Somit wird das persönliche Engagement der Jugendlichen gestärkt.
