Jugendgruppe (Youthgroup)


     Our Youthgroup was established in 1953 to carry on our great tradition and customs.  The Jugendgruppe ranges in age from High school to their early twenties.  They do a variety of skits, sing traditional German folk songs and perform various ethnic folkdances. They perform throughout the Chicago land area and travel to many other city's within the United States.  They have also performed in other countries as well.

     Every three years they compete in the national folkdance competition for prestige and honor.  They are a great, talented and enthusiatic group that make us very proud of our German heritage.

     The Jugendgruppe gathers every Friday at our Chicago location to socialize and practice for upcoming events.  Come join Nick, Ron, Erik and the gang. Interested parties are always welcome at The American Aid Society.
