Since 2014 the town of Brandis has been a Saxon model municipality in the scope of the Jugend bewegt Kommune (young people benefiting the community) project. In this programme partners in the town strengthen the open child and youth work offers in particular, connecting existing offers, creating tailored offers for children and young people in the individual districts of the town and promoting the development of young people within the existing clubs and associations. Particular focus lies upon the establishment of a body to represent the interests of children and young people in municipal decision-making processes. The Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung foundation provides advisory assistance in the development of a participation-oriented child and youth concept.
