Kathrin Hölscher


My life is a colorful bouquet of flowers. Not only that I have fun in many things - especially diversity is fun for me. Everything that can't be squeezed into a frame inspires me. I always find new approaches for open group processes. Breaking down barriers, learning, developing with everyone - that's my thing. I bring a lot of creativity and I like to develop methods in the ongoing seminar process, so that they really fit the group. Can't do it? Get in touch with me... I will prove it to you.

Educational pathway

Formal education: Studies in Social Work and Social Pedagogy, Master of Arts Empowerment Studies

Non-formal education:
Further training in voluntary youth work: leading and moderating groups, group dynamics, planning and organising summer camps in Southern Europe, project management, guiding voluntary teams, open space, music and theatre.

Volunteering is part of my life. In the scouts and musical youth work, on summer camps and tent camps, I learned what it means to work with groups, to listen, to recognise talents and to give space for everyone to develop. In recent years, I have been particularly involved in the empowerment of women. Here I have once again understood practically for myself how individual the experience of discrimination is. Through my association di-world e.V., I also have experience in registering associations and acquiring funding for project implementation, as well as active networking.
