As an internationally active organisation, the Jacobs Foundation wants to contribute to improving the development of current and future generations of young people to enable them to become socially responsible members of society. They are committed to recognising and strengthening the individual potential of children and youth and to developing and expanding their vocational skills.
The goals of the Jacobs Foundation are to promote innovation in research and practice and to combine scientific findings with practical applications. In this regard, it is important to us that programs are evidence-based and achieve sustainable results. The foundation also wants to foster public dialogue and create networks to bring about social changes in the area of child and youth development.
