Promotion of educational projects

We see education as a task for society as a whole. With our projects, we want to contribute to improving equal opportunities in the education system, remove hurdles in the development of adolescents and young adults, and bring education stakeholders into dialogue with each other.

Our projects

Strengthen language education and language promotion

With the "Megafon - Prize for Language Education and Language Support for Adolescents and Young Adults" we support language projects for adolescents and young adults - for example for students in secondary schools, in vocational training or in the transition system.

Strengthen cooperation in the neighborhood

The project "heimspiel. For Education" makes education a community task and strengthens local education networks. We support schools, kindergartens, clubs and local stakeholders in Hamburg's Billstedt and Neuwiedenthal districts in finding new ways of working together in the neighborhood. The goal is to improve the educational biographies of children and young people so that, for example, more young people graduate from school.

Strategies against truancy

According to estimates, five to ten percent of all students in Germany are regularly absent from class, and almost eight percent leave school without a diploma. What can schools do to combat absenteeism and school dropouts? These questions are the focus of the "Every School Day Counts" project. Teachers are provided with a toolbox containing methods developed and tested by a research team together with schools from the "heimspiel" neighborhood project.

Study Compass

In Germany, the educational path taken by children and young people is still strongly determined by their origins. This is precisely where the Studienkompass initiative comes in, supporting young people from non-academic families with a multifaceted program and accompanying them during their last two years of school and their first year at a university or in vocational training.
