The youth center Westside formerly know as Treffpunkt is a municipal institution, which is situated in Jena Lobeda-Ost. At our open space, kids and young people from the age of 12 to 21 can hang out and spend their leisure time. Our different offers vary from sports activities, cultural and educational projects to cooperation with other institutions within the district of Lobeda.

Volunteer task: Our volunteers support us to run the place and help with daily procedures. There is a lot of time to participate in any activities with the kids: play games, just talk and hang out and listen to very loud music. The volunteers give our place the extra spirit to make it a happy place for all of us. There are a lot of opportunities to organize own projects depending on someone’s individual skills and interests.

Learning possibilities:

– Learn how to plan, organise and deliberate own and cooperative projects

– Work and participate in a multinational team

– Develop and realize own ideas
