General Information: Landjugend Österreich (Rural Youth Austria) is a non-profit organization and a part of the Austrian Chamber of Agriculture. The general aim of the rural youth is to offer personal education and free time activities for young people. One of 6 different focuses of Landjugend Österreich is to enable international experiences for rural youth. We are the most important partner for Austria’s agricultural schools for sending their students abroad. We run an outbound program for agricultural trainings in different European countries and also in oversea countries. 2009 we started an inbound program in the oenology sector. Altogether we service about 500 Austrian students to experience agriculture all over the world. Promotion tours, orientation seminars, preparation meetings and support service in cooperation with our partner organizations are included in all our traineeship programs. For all our European trainees we provide funding within the European program „Erasmus+”. Additionally we organize many activities for our Landjugend members like agricultural excursions abroad, language courses, city trips, international seminars. We have a very intensive cooperation with Austria’s Agricultural schools. At the age of 15 to 17 agricultural students do their 14-weeks agricultural practical training which is part of their education. The main part of these students goes abroad via the Landjugend Österreich. Per season we service about 500 students for going abroad. About 60% of these are looking for a training place via us. The others get funding, insurance etc.
