The SOS Children's Village Mersch also runs workshops for youth who could hardly find a job on the job market. They receive an extensive vocational training, become used to regular working hours and receive support if conflicts arise. The youth receive an extensive know-how in a variety of fields, like wood and metal processing and home economics. The training in each of the fields takes from one to four years and every six months the pupils have to pass a test. The SOS Workshops offer eight training posts.
