Our Project

The Azubiwerk runs a dormitory for young people who have come to Hamburg to start an apprenticeship. Our dorm is home to 156 apprentices aged 16 to 26 years.

Living in small shared flats and the many common areas and activities make our house more than a collection of apartments – it’s a real home with a strong social environment and is also conveniently located in the heart of the city.

Under the premise of “Accompany instead of caring”, the apprentices are supported in their own independence and self-responsibility to take the first steps outside of their parents’ home. The pedagogical team of Azubiwerk offers a variety of activities and consulting services on site. Since we have underage as well as adult residents living in Wandsbek, our pedagogical team is on site around the clock, 365 days a year. We advise, help or just listen to our residents, if needed. The common areas provide space for a variety of ideas: from cooking together to gardening on our roof terrace.

Requirements for volunteers

We are looking for dedicated, young people who enjoy working with other young people. The activities include the support of the apprentices and our pedagogical team. The focus is to design leisure activities (afternoon / evening), as well as craft activities in cooperation with our janitor (morning). One of the core tasks is the work at our continuously occupied reception area: This is the main point of contact for the apprentices, where we help them with words and deeds.

Responsibilities / Tasks

  • Supporting the team in the afternoon / evening in leisure activities (cooking evenings, sports etc.)
  • Supporting the janitor (rather in the morning)
  • Supporting the reception, which includes phone calls

We offer

  • An attractive and diversified BFD / FSJ and the opportunity to decide to either support our janitor in the mornings / lunchtime or to work lunchtime / evening and focus on recreational activities
  • Pocket money
  • Support and advice from our pedagogical staff
  • The possibility to live in the house for free

Please send your application (preferably via e-mail) to: leitung-wandsbek@azubiwerk.de

Living in Münzviertel

Geschrieben von Azubiwerk am 20. November 2019. in Muenzviertel

A new residential complex with park

Our third dormitory is located in the heart of the Münzviertel district, close to Hamburg Central Station. The attractive new building with a view over the city is located in a residential quarter that offers housing space for 209 apprentices. It is not only apprentices who find a home here; the accommodation services offered by the neighbouring providers is also aimed at families, singles and students.

In addition to its modern facilities, the hall of residence also impresses with its particularly central location. The inner courtyard leaves nothing to be desired – in the green outdoor area you will find table tennis tables, sunbathing lawns, a barbecue area and many opportunities for a cosy get-together on warm summer days. Should the weather be bad, however, there are attractive common rooms (approx. 250 m²) in the Foundation’s headquarters with, for example, a table football or billiard table, a small cinema, comfortable sofas and a proper sound and lighting system. The common rooms will not yet be usable by August 2022, but will open later.

 

Based on the premise of “accompanying instead of looking after”, the apprentices are also supported here in taking their first steps outside the parental home independently and on their own responsibility. Our pedagogical team offers a variety of activities and counselling services on site. The apprentices play an active role in shaping their living environment by, among other things, regularly electing their dormitory council, which can dispose of its own budget.

 

The new residential complex including the Azubiwerk is currently still under construction. The quarter will be ready for occupation from August 2022. Apply now!

→ The current rental prices and the application form can be found here.

→ Further information on the educational offers on site can be found here.

The old school building will be the central focus point of the new quarter.
