Hermann Gmeiner Academy

International training centre of SOS Children's Villages and seminar house

We are a platform dedicated to the professional exchange, training and further education of the employees of SOS Children’s Villages and the location of many conferences essential to the organisation’s work. Our archive constitutes the memory of SOS Children’s Villages. Additionally, our research also focuses on topics relating to childhood, family and organizational culture.

Furthermore, the academy is responsible for the distribution of awards recognizing the special commitment and achievements of program participants and employees around the world. Our house is also open to the many friends of the SOS Children's Village and other social organizations and can be booked by them. Our heart and professional commitment is for a world of tomorrow in which all children are respected, loved and supported in their development so that they have many opportunities for a self-determined, happy life.
