With your own strengths to the goal: That is the motto in the "Wendepunkt" program.
People who have been unemployed for several years and receive benefits from the job center (so-called long-term unemployed) are supported by the "Wendepunkt" team in finding a suitable employment opportunity. At eye level and in a trusting atmosphere, you and your intensive support worker uncover your as yet unused strengths and skills and together develop strategies for taking up a job. On this basis, your intensive care worker will look for a suitable employment opportunity for you.
Through the Participation Opportunities Act, employers can be financially supported in the process of hiring you. By the way, the support at "Wendepunkt" does not stop as soon as you have found a suitable job. A qualified job coach accompanies you up to 12 months in your new job and helps you to master the transition between unemployment and job well.
