The Elbinstitute Hamburg opens extensive perspectives for optimal educational opportunities and thus sustainably better opportunities for integration into labor markets and society.

Since 2007, we support in “learning circles” and professional academies dedicated students with potential, in all general education sectors.

Since the end of 2014, we offer “language and orientation classes” for adult people regardless of origin and status. These classes include various general subjects, application advice and civics.

From the outset, dialogues between equal partners took place since 2007, initially during the projects "YMT im Dialog" and "Expertengespräch" and since mid-2015 in the "Direct dialogues".

The Elbinstitut (in the past „FORUM – Young Migrant Talents e.V.) was founded in 2007 by the graduated geographer Barbara Seibert.
