The Youth Leaders Card (JULEICA) is available to recognise, strengthen and support the volunteers in youth work. It can be issued as a uniform national id card for volunteers in youth work and serves as a legitimation and proof of qualification. The exhibition of the Youth Leaders Card is reserved for youth leaders who have received sufficient practical and theoretical qualification for the performance of their duties. The corresponding training must have been provided by a recognised institution of free youth assistance or by a public institution of youth assistance within the meaning of SGB VIII.
