“Education overcomes poverty” is the motto of Jugend Eine Welt. Nevertheless, this does not mean any type of education. The focus of all Don Bosco educational measures is an individual child, an individual adolescent, and their potential, which should be promoted and developed in the best possible way.
In this respect, education at Don Bosco does not only include “normal” subjects such as reading, writing, or arithmetic. Great attention is also paid to the area of "heart education", or an education in human values that are closely linked to the Christian image of a man. This includes helpfulness, a sense of responsibility, and following appropriate rules, as well as respect for "being different" from other people and a clear "no" to drugs, inhumanity, and violence.
