Wilthen Youth Centre

Welcome at

Wilthen Youth Centre

Wilthen Youth Centre

It all started in October 1991 when the idea of open youth work was brought up by two MPs and Pastor Fritz. The idea was followed by action and the youth centre opened its doors on Dresdener Straße in 1992– at that time still under the auspices of the town of Wilthen.

A lot has happened here since then. It has been renovated and modernised, built and remodelled. Since 2006, when the founder was changed to the association Valtenbergwichtel e.V.Neukirch, the “elves“ moved in.

Today, the open youth centre in Wilthen offers all children and young people numerous opportunities for meaningful leisure activities and we are also open to questions and problems.

Youth participation

Together with young people with an affinity for cycling and BMX, we organise regular renovation and construction activitiesat the local skate park. In the process, the young people independently plan and outline their ideas and wishes. In addition to working on their own skatepark, other spots in the district are visited, ridden and tested.

The planning and design of the day trips is in the hands of the young people. The youth centre offers the group a protected space where they meet at regular intervals for consultation meetings.

Summer Day Camp at the Youth Centre
The summer camp offers young people the opportunity to spend a few days in the meadow with the social workers. Every year, the programme includes full-day excursions, team games, outdoor cooking, open-air cinema, campfiresand lots of fun.

The Wilthen Youth Centre as Club Global

As part of the “Club Global” project, we want to give children and young people the opportunity to look beyond their own horizons, encourage them to change their perspectives, discover global aspects in their everyday livesand try out options for action that are close to the real world.

We are the guardians of order, arbiters of disputes, and leisure time organisers, and sometimes we are also the trouble-shooters for our guests in the Wilthen Youth Centre.

Leader of the Wilthen Youth Centre

You can usually find me every day at the Wilthen Youth Centre. I am the contact person for the Wilthen Youth Centre and the various projects that can be found in the house and around it.

I’m here for an open leisuretime meeting Monday to Friday from 1pm to 6pm and would be happy to play pool, various board games or just chat with you.

If you have any questions, requests or suggestions, please feel free to contact me. I also have an open ear for you if you have any worries or problems, and I’m there to help you in word and deed!

I am also interested in creative and craft projects. I am also responsible for the skate park in Wilthen. Do you have ideas and suggestions for enhancing this space and building new elements? Give me a shout.

I look forward to your visit! 🙂
