Sports connect

Integration is an important issue and sport plays an important role. The BSO therefore uses its network to create or promote awareness of the subject area. To understand this diversity as an opportunity is an important step on the path to successful integration. The Austrian sports clubs with their diverse offerings bring together people with and without a migration background. They are places of encounter and offer great integration potential.


Target group(s): Children and young adults



The main objective of the project is the organization of sports and exercise programs for unaccompanied minors, as well as young adults, children or families, in primary reception centers as well as in selected care centers, involving regional sports clubs. In addition, trainers are offered training courses for ORS staff, asylum seekers or already existing instructors with special focus on intercultural skills.
