mobile youth center Langer See

In the five Treptow-Köpenick localities Grünau, Schmöckwitz, Karolinenhof, Rauchfangswerder and Müggelheim live together about 2000 young people. All three district regions have no district-funded youth work services. Therefore, the district took the initiative for a location-independent youth work offer and started an expression of interest procedure.

With the resolution of the Youth Welfare Committee of 14.9.2022, we are instructed to develop and maintain an offer of location-independent youth work for these regions.

The offer will be newly created. The fact that all district regions are located around the Long Lake as well as our conversations with young people on site have inspired us to create a mobile youth center on the water.

From our point of view, this must be usable all year round, barrier-free or at least accessible with little assistance, and large enough for up to 15 simultaneous visitors. It should be equipped with free wifi, a kitchen and a seating area as well as space-saving play facilities and a toilet. 

Mobile youth center on tour

At the moment, your new Grünauer/Müggelheimer/Schmöckwitzer youth center is still in the shipyard and is being diligently welded together from individual parts. Until the completion, we are, as promised, on the road in your neighborhoods, approachable for you and looking forward to getting to know you. In addition to the many organizational things, exploratory walks, network and get-to-know meetings and various AGs of the Youth Welfare Office, we are currently on the road with our bus on three afternoons and set up our mobile youth club in the afternoon at fixed locations.

On Tuesdays you can meet us in Müggelheim on the village green in front of the local history museum.

On Wednesdays you can meet us in Grünau in the park at the river Dahme at the end of Schlierseestraße near the fire department.

Every Thursday you can meet us in Schmöckwitz in the small park at the Schmöckwitz bridge opposite the bathing meadow.

On site you can get to know us, prove your skills at the table football, at graffiti or at sportive activities, play a round of cards with us and above all: share your ideas for the houseboat. The fact that the boat is not yet finished should be seen as a chance to let ideas flow into the design, equipment and offers of the youth club. 

If you are unable to do so due to a busy schedule, you are still welcome to send us your ideas. Simply use our word cloud at Mentimeter and enter your ideas online at and send them directly to us. All you need is the code: 5893 0367. 

See you around, your mJZ team Jule and Christian!

The mobile youth center says thank you!

We would like to thank the company Blaumann & Co from Bad Oeynhausen in East Westphalia for our new smart 3in1 work jackets, which now let us cut a fine figure in our offerings even in wind and weather. It's nice that Managing Director Marcus Harm hasn't forgotten his home district even after more than 20 years in exile: "When I heard about the idea of the floating youth club, I wanted to do my part to make such a project a success in my old home, which I still hold close to my heart! And what better way to do that for a manufacturer of custom workwear than with new sponsored weatherproof jackets for working on the boat in all weathers. And until then, they should help to make the social workers better known in the neighborhoods. In my own youth, I would have been very happy about such a project, so it's even nicer that it will be available to Köpenick's youth in the future." We say at this point: you have more than succeeded with the individual design of the jackets. 

THANK YOU from home in the greenest, wateriest and most beautiful part of Berlin! 


older reports:

In recent weeks, we have been on the lookout for a boat. You can say: "There was a lot of nice". Unfortunately, however, there was always some flaw. Well, then we just let us build something.

We gathered our wishes: It should be at least 13 m long and 4 m wide, the motorization should be environmentally friendly, the boat should be able to live self-sufficiently on solar energy, it should have a toilet as well as facilities for a kitchen, it should have insulation and heating for the winter, it should have an office and storage space and enough sockets for charging cell phones. We also wanted a roof terrace and for the boat to be barrier-free.

Many wishes at once. But we found a company that would build us a boat. Without frills and in such a way that you can still design it. And so we hope to be able to take delivery of the mobile youth center in the spring.
