The project Extrem Demokratisch – Muslimische Jugendarbeit stärken was aimed at multipliers in Muslim youth work from 2015 to 2019. In the form of workshops, further training and coaching, multipliers were given the opportunity to develop their skills as youth workers. In particular, they were seen as important partners in the field of “religiously based extremism” and their skills in dealing with the phenomenon were expanded.
In the project, the participants were familiarized with the standards of youth work and the possibilities of publicly funded youth social and youth association work. In addition, the multipliers were supported in developing their own approaches to youth work and in designing new approaches to youth work. The project clearly identified the challenges facing Muslim youth work. Therefore, young multipliers of Muslim youth work were provided with a nationwide forum to exchange ideas about the challenges and to develop common approaches.
