The Protestant Youth Foundation in Württemberg (EJW) is the largest confessional youth association with over 50,000 full-time and volunteer staff members. We conduct our work independently on behalf of the Protestant Regional Church of Württemberg and we are recognized as a sponsor of youth welfare and extracurricular youth education. We are also a member of the Working Group of Protestant Youth in Germany (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Evangelischen Jugend in Deutschland e.V.) and of CVJM Deutschland.
EJW coordinates, plans and promotes Protestant youth work in Württemberg from its central state office located in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. We provide support for youth centers locally as well as throughout the region. We also directly invest in children, confirmands, teens, families and (young) adults through our meaningful working areas, educational opportunities and trips.
Serving as the main conference center and education house for EJW, many of the educational opportunities and events organized by the EJW state office take place at Bernhäuser Forst. You can find an overview of the upcoming EJW events at the conference center here:
