WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER!

OUR SOCIAL DAYS

“Being strong together for others” is the motto for our Social Days which run every year. Organised by our apprentices and trainees, the aim of these days is to help children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Our junior staff event is also a great opportunity to network and for everyone to get to know each other better. And there’s more: our Social Days are also accompanied by a colourful supporting programme in Germany’s major cities which changes every year!

OUR SOCIAL DAYS IN 2021

In 2021 we had to implement a new concept for our annual Social Days because of the pandemic. This time around, our apprentices and trainees got involved in small groups in the surrounding area. They each supported an organisation with projects that they chose and organised themselves – take a look!
