PTG International Youth College

An alternative youth environment

PTG International Youth College (Ungdomshøjskolen PTG) is a private and independent boarding school for young people, based at an international campus in the country side in western Denmark. PTG is an alternative school where young people from different walks of life and nationalities can study, work and live together.

Social responsibility in focus

The school promotes social responsibility and works actively to increase cultural awareness, inclusion and tolerance. The programme also entails “Planet Protection activities” such as planting trees, garden farming, learning about nature and carrying out nature restoration projects. Some of the students at the schools come from troubled backgrounds and need social support to build a meaningful and successful future.

Students and Teachers run the school together

The school functions as a social community where everybody contributes with their strengths and positive efforts, and receives support in areas where they are lacking. The school has a strong “learning by doing” tradition, and also focuses on teaching skills. Thus, students and teachers run the school together, i.e. cooking, cleaning, maintenance work, gardening, shopping, planning programmes etc.
