You need to do something new to see something new.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, writer and philosopher
Unsure or not?
Some teenagers and young adults are very unsure whether they want to and should come to us or not, for a variety of reasons. For others, this is not the case.
(We have a solution for everyone – a solution that makes it easy for you, as a newcomer, to be in the thick of things at our meetings, to meet new people, and to have a lot of fun at the same time.)
On your own, whenever you want or to the newcomer day with appointment?
If you prefer to come to us on your own and alone, you are welcome to do so!
You can come to the meeting on any Friday or Wednesday. It’s best to come at 7:30 pm, based on our experience. It’s often easier and more pleasant for most people not to suddenly find themselves in front of 30 strangers, but to be there before the other Rosekids attendees, and to get to know them as they gradually arrive.
Newcomer day: Perfect for you as a newcomer
About every three months, we also offer a newcomer day.
On this day, the regular meetings starts a little later and so there is time to look at the rooms in peace, ask questions and get to know the other newcomers before everyone else arrives.
This also takes away some of the excitement.
If you don’t know where we meet yet, our meetings are in the rooms of the Jugendhilfswerk (JHW), Haslacher Straße 41, 79115 Freiburg (across from Schwarzwaldmilch); check out our directions.
By the way, you can also use the “Bring-In-Service“ (see below) at the newcomer day.
The next appointment for the newcomer day:
Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at 7:30pm (at the next Saturday: Rosekids @ CSD Freiburg: great entry opportunity)
Freitag, 30. Juni 2023 um 19.30 Uhr
More appointments for the newcomer day:
Wednesday, August 16, 2023, at 7:30 PM
Wednesday, September 13, 2023, at 7:30 PM
You’re afraid to come to us alone or you’re afraid that you won’t find your way to us, but you are determined to come to the meetings?
Then the easiest way is to use our bring-in-service:
One our team members will be happy to pick you up at a meeting point and walk with you to our rooms. Sometimes, you perhaps just don’t have to courage to come to one of the meetings all by yourself or you don’t find the way alone.
If you let one of us pick you up, you’ll have someone by your side to accompany you.
You’ll have time to ask any last-minute questions that suddenly pop into your head, and you can get to know the first one(s) of us a bit.
Meet & talk
You are still (very) insecure and you would prefer to meet one of us first, just like that, without any obligation?
Then Meet & Talk is probably the right thing for you to break the ice:
One or us would like to meet you – privately and without going directly to the Rosekids meeting afterwards.
You can ask the person all your questions and talk to them.
Then, you get to know one of us a little better – and after the meeting you can calmly think about whether you want to come to the meeting at later time.
…You’re not the only one!
If you don’t dare to come to us alone, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
Some of us who come to the meetings regularly know this only too well: they were also a little or even a lot afraid before they dared to come to the meetings in the youth group.
So, you are by no means the only one who feels this way.
It’s definitely worth it to visit us.
Contact us: many possibilities!
If you want, one of our teamers will be happy to arrange a meeting point with you, pick you up there and go together with you to Rosekids – or just meet with you in advance – whichever you prefer!
If you just have questions, you can of course write to us.
Please have also a look at our FAQ.
All contact options can be found on the Contact Us page.
You’ll see: with our “Bring-In” or “Meet & Talk”, everything is very easy – and if you come on your own, it’s the same.
Come by – as you like it!
Just come by on Wednesdays or Fridays and see everything with your own eyes.
Of course you can also bring friends (sexual orientation doesn’t matter).
We are looking forward to you!
…it would be ultra-cool if you would give us some feedback.
You are welcome to do this anonymously: Just use our Tellonym-profile. (If you want an answer, you’ll have to create a profile there, which is done quickly. For us, you remain anonymous anyway.)
It’s also best to come to the following meetings on Wednesday and/or Friday after the newcomer day. Only then you will really get to know the people – and they will get to know you.
