The Projects

Our »bridge stones«

The challenges care leavers have to face are manifold. For this reason, there is no single solution for all. In our initiative we combine numerous projects that pursue different approaches.

Many projects – One vision

Our common vision is the foundation of our »bridge stones«. Close cooperation and coordination between the seven Brückenstein partners who manage the projects allow a view of the bigger picture.

Our overarching projects...

Funded by Robert Bosch Stiftung

Digital Platform

Discovering digital solutions and developing them together with and for care leavers: that is the aim of the »Digitale Plattform« project, which is being implemented in cooperation with ORBIT Ventures GmbH and funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

Fund "Careleaver seminar series"

15 stories, 1 group of experts through experience, 3 weekends and lots of fun with time for exchange. This is what makes a Careleaver seminar series! All our partners can work with this successful, evaluated workshop format.

As a Collective Impact initiative we have overarching projects in which all Brückenstein partners are involved.


We build bridges across (inter)national borders. In this way, we promote the transfer of knowledge and the bundling of our concerns on a transnational level. We enable care leavers to access and participate in international experience, exchange and participate in building a community that extends beyond Germany.

Fund "Support of self-organisation"

We support care leavers to become aware of their potential common strengths and political interests as advocates for themselves.
