There are several possibilities to help other people and to do good. HSBA students also want to take responsibility in our society and be engaged in social projects besides their studies and work.
The Social Committee tries to point out and promote possibilities for social engagement by collaborating with different associations. The type and duration of the engagement is diverse so that every student has the chance to stay independently. Either some single hours for an event or regularly for a longer period – the possibilities to commit are countless so that everybody gets the chance to find the right project.
Here are some of our current projects:
Tutoring in children’s home
The project “Studenteninitiative e.V.” is an association throughout Germany which encourages the collaboration between students and children’s homes. We support the association of Hamburg by tutoring pupils. We would be happy creating new contacts with more students.
“Rock your life Hamburg e.V.” provides coaching relations between pupils and students. Pupils of socially disadvantaged families are connected with a student to work together on aims, visions as well as talents and potential of the pupils. By regular meetings the students try to show perspectives for the future. The social committee supports the association since its establishment. During this time many coaching relationships could be developed.
Radio listeners help children
The Project of Radio Hamburg „Hörer helfen Kindern” is a year-round aid program which supports needy children of Hamburg in different ways. Every year in the weeks before Christmas the donations cans can also be found in the HSBA.
Gute Tat (good deed) is a platform for community-based projects. The "Heute ein Engel" ('today an angel') initiative allows volunteers to get involved in many different projects without any long-term obligations and thus to help others in a fast and non-bureaucratic way.
Clothing and glasses collection
During the annual organized clothing and glasses collections the HSBA students find a perfect reason to tidy up their wardrobe and do something good at the same time. The collected pieces are donated to national as well as international organizations.
Be engaged in social affairs!
Besides participating in our projects we are also happy about students who want to support us. We always need help for the organization and development of events and projects. Moreover there are several possibilities to work as a member of our committee. New proposals and ideas are always welcome.
