O čom to je?
Prisoners who have been sentenced for being in breach of residency laws are allowed to serve a shorter sentence, if they declare their willingness to leave Austria. SBS, a project based in Suben Prison in Upper Austria, aims to help these prisoners to serve their remaining time in a useful way and to prepare them for a new start in their home country. A German course forms the basis of the ten-month programme. Afterwards, foundation courses in civics/law, IT and commercial arithmetic are taught in a module system. In addition, the participants can take part in a two-month work placement to acquire a basic grounding in the fields of metalwork, woodwork, tailoring, construction and plumbing.

In 2008, the jury awarded the project second place for its “refreshingly creative pragmatism in dealing with a practical observed need (…) in a target group that is not exactly highly regarded by society: black offenders who are facing deportation.”
