Existing arrangements

The basic training organized by the Council of the German-speaking Youth (Rat der Deutschsprachigen Jugend, RDJ) (formerly organised by the Youth Commission (Jugendkommission) leads to an “Accreditation Certificate as volunteer youth leader” as explained in Article 38 of the Decree of 6 December 2011 on the Promotion of Youth Work (Dekret vom 06. Dezember 2011 zur Förderung der Jugendarbeit). Other basic training courses that are not organised by the Council of the German-speaking Youth but meet general content criteria may also lead to “Accreditation Certificate as volunteer youth leader”.
