Frankfurt Hub

The Global Shapers Frankfurt Hub is a vibrant community of individuals committed to taking action with the objective of improving the state of the world – with a particular focus on Frankfurt and its surroundings. We want to drive action through projects that foster collaboration, innovation, and smart solutions addressing current and future challenges of our society. We see ourselves as an organization building bridges between different stakeholders to drive positive societal change.

Are you interested in joining us?

If you're living around Frankfurt and are below 27.5 years old, you can apply to join our community. Our Hub-specific recruiting cycle takes place twice a year and we will announce it on this website and via social media. In the meantime, you can signal your interest by through this Google Forms. You can also contact us through the general Global Shapers recruiting link, but this does not replace our Hub-specific recruiting process.

We are currently accepting applications until April 30th, 2024. Apply here now!

What are our projects?

  • In our flagship project, Shaping Pathways, we aim to give disadvantaged youth from Frankfurt and its surroundings a hand in transitioning into adulthood. In particular, we work with young people aged 13-19 y.o., who attend the less academic tracks of the German school system and thereby remain exempt from many existing opportunities. Check it out here.

  • The centerpiece of Shaping Pathways is the so-called Buddy Program, in which we match adolescents with Senior Buddies, who are typically students or young professionals and serve as reference persons for all arising matters. Since 2023, Shaping Pathways has been enlarging its focus on school-to-job transitions and aims to create practical and barrier-free formats to facilitate youth's information and labor market access.

  • Another prominent project in our Hub is our Sustainability Initiative, in which we work together to bring sustainability nearer to our local community. We are currently launching a website that enables shoppers to buy and recycle fashion items sustainably. Stay tuned for what is to come!

  • With our format, the NEXT B2B FORUM, and our strong network, we bring key stakeholder at one table to foster innovation and discuss key themes such as circular economy and gender equality.

  • Finally, we have recently launched a new project: the Global Shapers Seminar Series in Frankfurt, in which we invite hand-picked speakers to share their learnings with our community and beyond. After each presentation, we engage in discussions about how to make the learnings more implementable in our daily lives.

Our values are at the core of our work.

In all that we do, we put our core values at the center of our actions: Passion, Integrity, Service, Cooperation and Commitment. In addition, we believe in the power of a strong network and the empowerment of others. Therefore, we work closely together with other hubs internationally to increase our impact. Local action, global impact.
