Information for Students and Student Initiatives
Through volunteering, you can do your part for a better world! At the same time, volunteering can give you new insights into your academic subject and help you develop skills that you can use within your course and in your professional life after university.
By supporting charitable and community causes, you’ll show your ability to work as part of a team, solve problems, show initiative and take on responsibility. And that’s hugely important to future employers.
In many volunteering opportunities, you also create connections with people outside of campus and the university bubble, giving you new local contacts and also a more grounded perspective on life in Germany
Seminars with Service Learning
Service learning seminars combine theory and practice. Students deepen their subject-specific learning by working on projects for the common good - and receive credits for doing so.
Individual Volunteering Opportunities
If you are looking for an individual volunteering opportunity, there are many student initiatives as well as non-profit community organisations in Kassel welcoming people who would like to get involved. Additionally, we provide advice and support to new student initiatives.
