The YAY (Young & Yourself) Bielefeld is an open club for youths and young adults between the age of 14 and 27 from Bielefeld and OWL.
We offer a safe space for queer youths, where they can get to know each other, exchange experiences and plan their mutual leisure time while in the club.
Besides the sace space we also offer free professional counseling by our educational staff or one of our voluntary contact persons.
For the purpose of organizing and structuring democratic procedures, the club designed a document of self-understanding (117,1kB PDF-file, German). This recent version was accepted on 2018-12-12.
In our rooms we offer the possibilities to talk with each other, play party games, billiard, tabletop football or darts. We also regularly prepare some food together or plan trips we take as a group.
Our club is funded by the Falken Bielefeld, who are also kindly providing the space for our meetings.
