Frankfurt UAS supports young people with commitments

Together with the Hessian State Chancellery, the team at the coordination and advice centre for service learning and social commitment has launched the pilot project "#zukunftsmacher - young.local.engagiert!" to qualify young people between the ages of 16 and 25. The young people from all over Hesse applied with a project idea in the field of volunteering that they want to implement for the benefit of the public. Among the ideas of individuals and teams are e.g. a bumblebee meadow, transcultural storytelling, the conversion of a public square into a multifunctional sports field, an art workshop and a girls' football club. A team of trainers from the School of Personal Development and Education (ScoPE) and students from the Frankfurt UAS coached the young people from April to July 2022 and helped them professionally and personally to get their projects rolling. The four all-day face-to-face workshops and three evening online units dealt with topics such as project management and design thinking, communication and cooperation, as well as dos and don'ts in the area of ​​volunteering. The project ideas are also financially supported by the Hessian State Chancellery with 500 euros each for further development and implementation. The pilot project is currently being evaluated and should be carried out again next year if the result is positive.
