FREIZEITLADEN (Youth Center)

Freizeitladen is a social institution for kids and youth. We welcome children at the age of 8 to14 years after they finished their day at school, these children live partly under difficult family circumstances. In addition to family and school, Freizeitladen offers a large number of projects and is, therefore, an important part of their socialization. We offer children and teenagers an open space to develop their own competencies, including social education.

Our volunteers mostly work from Monday to Friday from 12:00 till 18:30. Each member of our

team has his/her own talents – so everybody can learn something from each other. Some are specialists in handcrafts, some in cultural projects (like circus or theatre) and some for outdoor education and sports activities. We are all looking forward to sharing our knowledge and skills.

The volunteer is an equal part of the team. He/she will be included in the pedagogical and daily

work as well. In the pedagogical part of the work, he/she can plan and arrange own projects, of

course with the support of the whole team. For example, the volunteer can organize a sports activity or present a way of living in his/her culture, like traditions or typical food…etc. He/she can support us in the project “Gut drauf” which is an offer for healthy food, motion and relaxing.

We offer:

– A room for sport and group activities

– A kitchen for healthy-cooking projects

– A workshop for bicycles and woodwork

– A room for relaxing

– An outdoor area with a building ground for the kids, a playground, a place for a campfire, an

oven made of loam, vegetable patch, sports equipment and more…
