Who is GO Salzburg? Good Question! We are an association of people who love Jesus and want to demonstrate and replicate his heart for those who need help. Specifically, we want to offer whatever we can to serve and love the young people of Salzburg. What was started by a small group of concerned parents is now a diverse network of people, young and old, coming from different backgrounds and countries, ready to reach out for the sake of the one.
One way we are responding to the needs of Salzburg’s youth is by offering practical help in the form of “Street Buddies.” This service provides assistance on the Rudolfskai, a local pub and bar district. Volunteers go out every weekend, prepared with water bottles, first aid materials, flip flops to replace broken shoes, and a smile. They are ready to clean up the sick, be a listening ear, call the emergency services in cases of trouble, or simply share some sweets and good conversation with the young folks there.
Another project of GO Salzburg is the creation of our “Global Café.” It will be a welcoming and relaxing place for young people to enjoy. This concept is still in development, and we’re looking for the perfect location! We want to make a place where amazing live music is a staple, good drinks and treats are relished, and great friendships are made.
