Annually, the AIWC sponsors the Spring Charity event to raise funds for a local charitable organization or cause. Each member has the opportunity to submit a charity or cause that is special to them. From these charity nominations, the General Board hears each proposal and votes on the charity. It is a rewarding process that brings members together for great causes.
With our selected charity, the club hosts the Spring Gala, where it's time to enjoy music, dancing, and an extravagant auction in order to raise funds for the charity.
Who We Are
ZuBaKa is a non-profit start-up located in Frankfurt am Main. ZuBaKa stands for “ZukunftsBauKasten” - a modular “model kit” for the future. It is our goal to improve the starting conditions of young people newly arriving in Germany and support their social participation.
Our own experiences have shown us that German schools constantly face the great challenge of integrating thousands of young newcomers and of enabling a smooth start into the job market without having enough resources. This is the problem we address by offering additional support.
What We Do
By accompanying students in the “integration classes” - classes designed to convey basic knowledge of German - throughout the school year, we facilitate their start in both: the school and the city. Working closely together with teachers and social workers, we implement a wholesome concept that is tailored to the student’s specific needs. The ZuBaka Scouts - advanced students in educational studies - put into practice the ZuBaKa modules in weekly sessions that are integrated into the schools’ curricula.
We bring together students from integration and regular classes and form the basis for new friendships.
We facilitate the arrival phase with a get-together program introducing school and neighborhood.
We visit youth centers and clubs to introduce the various opportunities in the neighborhoods.
We prepare for internships, organise visits to local businesses and offer job application coaching.
Current Status and Outlook
We currently work with six schools in Frankfurt and experience a growing demand from further schools. With your much appreciated funding we plan to extend our activities and develop a model that can be expanded into further cities and regions. Thank you for choosing to support ZuBaKa and your faith in our mission!
