Organisation

Akzeptanz, Vertrauen, Perspektive (Acceptance, Trust, Perspective) - AVP e.V. is an NGO based in Düsseldorf, Germany. When it was founded in 2002, the association saw itself as a non-profit organisation that promoted the integration of Russian-speaking young people and adolescents in Germany.

With over 70 employees today, AVP e.V. makes an important contribution to social work in Düsseldorf, as well as at national and international levels, in the areas of family counselling, educational, youth, cultural and prevention work.

Type of organisation: NGO

Project description:

The project streetwork@online seeks to establish a dialogue with young people from Berlin between the ages of 16 and 27. This will strengthen their capacity for critical reflection and support them in their identity formation.

The project aims to counteract radicalisation justified on the basis of Islam. It focuses on online measures and actions. The project is supported by the Landeskommission Berlin gegen Gewalt (Berlin Commission against Violence).

Key activities:

  • Online-Streetwork: The team reaches out to young people through social media. In practice, this means that we participate in discussions in comment columns of various Facebook groups as well as on Instagram or engage in one-to-one chats. The aim is to encourage users to reflect on their own perspectives and actions.
  • Iam-street Berlin: Via the platform Iam-street Berlin, we publish video content. We focus on interviews produced together with local film teams. These interviews with strong and popular personalities aim to inspire our target audience to follow their own path.

The streetwork@online team consists of six people. We combine specialist knowledge and several years of working experience in the fields of youth work, Islamic studies, psychology and theology as well as cultural and media pedagogy to create an innovative approach. Due to various cultural and religious imprints, we can gain access to our target group in an empathic and respectful manner.

In addition, we offer workshops and webinars for multipliers.
