The Austrian Youth Portal is a service for young people aged between 12 and 26 years living in Austria. It is a gateway to information on all topics that are relevant for young people, aiming to support orientation on the Internet.
The information on the site is structured by topics and consists of commented links to relevant sites that are selected by an editorial team. The language of the portal is German. If you are searching for information on working, studying, volunteering or travelling in Austria in English, please have a look at the relevant pages of the European Youth Portal, which are researched and up-dated by us as well.
If you have a question about a special region in Austria you can always contact the regional Youth Information Centre (also in English language) – see a list of contacts here.
