Welcome to YoCo!

YoCo - Young Connection is a youth and family project, created by the German Red Cross in Dresden, which aims to bring together German and refugee children between ages 4 and 21, along with their families. YoCo offers weekly activities, in which youth, no matter of origin, can participate. These activities include football tournaments, rock climbing excursions, museum trips, and so much more. Through the events, the youth not only have fun exploring Dresden, they also build relationships and trust among one another.

Our goal is to break through cultural and language barriers and embrace the similarities between the Youth in Dresden, thereby creating successful and sustainable participation for refugees in Dresden societal life.

If you are interested in helping to achieve this goal, or simply looking to have fun, you can find the list of events and activities for the coming weeks on our homepage. If you need more information send us an email at YoCo(at)drk-dresden.de or give us a call at 0351 312 15 78 8. We look forward to hearing from you!

This project is financed by the government of Saxony in accordance with the Landesprogramm Integrative Maßnahmen.
