Youth groups are specifically there for young members. Young likeminded people can get together in a school group or an open youth group to join forces and make a difference. Youth groups often come up with particularly creative activities, be it at Karneval der Kulturen, concerts for charity or staging improvisational theatre. Every youth group chooses their own focus area. There are many different tasks so there’s something to do for everyone. For a weekend every year. There is a meeting for members of youth and student groups from all over Germany on one weekend every year. There young members conduct workshops, have discussions, perform activities, give presentations, network and exchange ideas. You can find youth groups here.
The members of country and topical coordination groups are spread across Germany. They bring together great expertise in a country, region or human rights issue. They are there to support groups working on their specialist area by providing expertise or organisational advice. If you would like to devote your time to one specific issue and provide expertise, a coordination group may be the right thing for you. Many co-groups are based in Berlin. Here you can find a list of all co-groups in Germany.
