Contact person for the VDG youth
Young people have a very high priority in the VDG. Because we all know how we have gained our experience, knowledge and skills in dealing with glass. Some were a little painful, others were quick and easy, often you needed a lot of patience and sweat. In the end, the fascination for the material glass remained, which is why it was worthwhile to continue. The exchange with each other, the learning of experienced people and curiosity have proven to be good companions. We, the youth representatives and the entire VDG are always trying to respond to your concerns during and after your apprenticeship.
