The German Red Cross Youth is the independent and recognized youth association of the German Red Cross. About 113,000 children and young people aged 6 to 27 years are active members in more than 5500 GRCY groups. With our work we aim to be socially and politically involved. We are committed to health, our environment, to peace and to a better understanding among nations.
Our group members meet regularly and on an out-of-school basis. Our activities range from first aid to water rescue, peer mediation to holiday camps. Helping other people is the top priority of our programmes. Furthermore, we organise projects such as holiday events, perform theatre plays or simply visit the local swimming pool to have some fun. Those who still haven't got enough of the GRCY are welcome to be trained as group leaders and start their own GRCY group.
