youtrex is a non-profit career network which offers diverse and value-oriented academic and career development opportunities to school pupils (from Year 9 onwards), college and university students, trainee teachers, graduated law trainees, as well as PhD students. Together with its strong partners from science, business, and society, youtrex will help you transition successfully to the working world by building a long-term network early on. Direct contacts, selected knowledge, and individual support summarise what “youtrex” – “your track to excellence” – is about.
School pupils (from Year 9 onwards), college and university students, teacher trainees, graduated law trainees, PhD students, and graduates of all courses of study who have not yet entered the job market can register with youtrex.
Any youtrex members who, despite having successfully entered the working world, would like to continue using youtrex can of course do so. In this case you only need to change your occupational status to“Alumni” in your youtrex profile (at the top right under “Edit”).
The same applies to anyone who is already working and for example wishes to register as an alumni of a youtrex partner; just register and then change your occupational status in your youtrex profile to “Alumni” (at the top right under “Edit”).
A youtrex membership is free of charge for school pupils, university students, trainee teachers, graduated law trainees, PhD students and graduates.
No, this innovative approach promotes a new understanding of career – that there is a link between an individual’s accomplishments and the successful cooperation within the community and that corporate interests should be realised in a way that is in harmony with the needs of society and the environment. The youtrex values reflect the belief that, for each person’s personal development and success, looking beyond one’s own horizon, engaging in dialogue and social commitment are worth the effort. We see a career not as the success of an individual but as the success of a community – achieving more together by working together rather than against one another!
youtrex is operated by DGAN, which stands for Deutsche gemeinnützige Gesellschaft für akademische Nachwuchsförderung mbH (which translated means “German limited liability non-profit company for the promotion of young academic talent”). DGAN is the foundation-sponsored incubator of DgSAN Deutschen gemeinnützigen Stiftung für akademische Nachwuchsförderung (which translated means “German non-profit foundation for the promotion of young academic talent”). More information can be found in the Legal Notice.

youtrex is financed by DSAN Deutsche gemeinnützige Stiftung für akademische Nachwuchsförderung. In addition, business partners pay a contribution for using the services of youtrex. Their financial contribution is used for the ongoing innovative development of the network and the successful promotion of young academics, and is the reason why pupils, students, graduates and non-profit organisations can use youtrex free of charge. The contribution of the non-commercial partners in return consists of actively supporting young academics in their career through youtrex, as well as promoting the growth of the career network.
youtrex is independent and a non-profit organisation for the following reasons:
- As a non-profit career network youtrex promotes a sustainable career concept – at youtrex school pupils and university students of all courses of study engage in a lasting dialogue with businesses, universities and non-profit organisations.
- The network is financed by DSAN Deutsche gemeinnützige Stiftung für akademische Nachwuchsförderung.
- Business partners pay a contribution for using the services of youtrex which makes it possible for pupils, students, graduates and non-profit organisations to use youtrex free of charge.
- The project does not generate any revenue from advertising on youtrex.de.
- Moreover, the focus of youtrex is on environmental and social corporate responsibility. The youtrex partners post information on their profile pages on their corporate social responsibility measures and support programs.
- As a result, the hope is that young people will recognise the value of sustainable corporate governance and will help to implement these principles throughout society.
- DGAN Deutsche gemeinnützige Gesellschaft für akademische Nachwuchsförderung mbH is the operator of the youtrex network, and supports and promotes the talent and commitment of all its members.
