Join in and get involved

The KörberHaus is an open meeting place for all generations and cultures in Bergedorf - and a place to get involved!

All organizations in the KörberHaus would like to shape this place together with the people of Bergedorf:

  • Take part in many activities at KörberHaus and get to know new people
  • Bring in your own ideas and make KörberHaus a meeting place for a diverse Bergedorf
  • Find temporary space for your organization and your concerns under our roof

Your commitment can take the form of a permanent honorary position or a flexible volunteer commitment. For example, you can help wherever support is needed. No matter how you participate, your commitment is always voluntary, self-determined, free of charge and, above all, always welcome! All organizations at KörberHaus work together to create good conditions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

From Bergedorf for ALL

AWO Landesverband Hamburg e.V.

Promoting solidarity in our society: people who volunteer to help others have always had a high priority at the AWO (Workers' Welfare Association Hamburg). Since its foundation more than 100 years ago until today, volunteering has been an important pillar for many of the AWO's offerings.

AWO Hamburg offers a wide range of opportunities for volunteering. Whether as an excursion companion in the daycare center, as support for young people or as a helper or leader in the AWO senior citizen meetings - this commitment is welcome and needed in many places.

Are you looking to become active and contribute your skills and ideas? Find an overview of voluntary activities at AWO Hamburg and advice here:

We are looking for people who would like to make Bergedorf a little better with their idea. Above all, we would like to inspire older people over the age of 50 to volunteer. We are convinced that they can contribute a lot to a good community. To make volunteering easy, we offer rooms, advice and training, for example. At the KörberHaus, volunteers can offer their help to others free of charge. We provide support to ensure that this help is successful. Volunteers can also participate in the Körber Foundation's own projects. You can find out more about our work and how you can get involved - whether you are 15, 50 or 85 years old - here.
