The youth work team in Poing is currently missing two employees: After just one year, the youth worker and the street worker are gone again.
Poing - After a year, the Poinger youth work team, which was newly set up in October 2020, is history again.
Both the youth worker Martina Venus and Sebastian Drescher, who was hired as a social worker in particular in the youth center and on the street (street work), are no longer in Poing.
As Mayor Thomas Stark reports, the two positions were advertised until shortly before Christmas.
“Explorations and job interviews are currently underway.” With the existing team in the children, youth and seniors department (Head: Jacqueline Schmidt), the municipal youth concept will nevertheless “of course be continued”.
Poing: Municipality has newly advertised jobs
The idea of updating this concept has been around for a good four years. In November 2020, Venus and Thorsten Gürntke (Head of Education) presented their ideas and suggestions on how the concept, which had been standing still until then, should be filled with life. Last year, youth worker Venus introduced a youth consultation, among other things, and the hands-on app “PLACEm” was installed for Poing. Title: "Jugend in Poing!" Here young people can contribute their ideas and take part in surveys - for example, which activities and events should be offered in the youth center (provided that the Corona situation allows it again).
Furthermore, last year a shelter was set up on Kirchheimer Allee in the Bergfeld Park as a meeting point, especially for young people.
And during the autumn holidays, the 1st Poinger Youth Festival took place.
A big project for the youth is the construction of a pump track facility.
Mayor Thomas Stark announced here at the end of 2021 that the lease for the property was about to be signed.
In the municipal council meeting on Thursday, January 20, he will report on the current situation, announced Stark.
