Weekly group meeting with Tanja, the social workers' new team leader

Youth work & common affairs

BMF is a stationary youth welfare facility and cares for unaccompanied minor refugees. The socio-pedagogical support promotes the independent lifestyle of the young refugees, while taking into account the existing resources. Identity formation is enabled and a development of perspectives is motivated through orientation and integration assistance.
Amongst others, one partially supervised living group for male under-age refugees is based at a residential building in one of Munich’s north-western neighbourhoods. A team of five social workers is taking care of up to ten adolescents or young man in two shared accomodations within the building. Each resident has their own room with a shared kitchen and living room.
