Find your volunteering opportunity in Hamburg

Germany’s second-largest city is known for the direct and reliable nature of its residents. This is also reflected in their social volunteering, as around 460,000 Hamburg residents are active in voluntary work. The social projects are as diverse as the city itself. There is also a wide range of social projects with which you can do good.
Do you want to get involved in volunteering in Hamburg? Then you will find many exciting projects on and can start directly with your social commitment.

Get involved on-site

With your social commitment in Hamburg, you can not only help others, but also develop yourself, acquire new skills and have fun at the same time. For example, support a non-profit Umsonst & Draußen festival and make sure that all participants and helpers have a great time. Do you like cooking for yourself and others and want to meet exciting people in the process? Then organize a Welcome Dinner for newcomers in Hamburg. Education is close to your heart? Then accompany children as a climb teacher during learning vacations and teach them German and math in a playful way. No matter what you decide to do, all social organizations in Hamburg are looking forward to your support.

Your team wishes you a lot of fun with your volunteering in Hamburg!
