Local Projects

Alfred Delp Haus

The Alfred Delp Haus is an initiative of the Living Fund for people with disabilities. Working at the facility provides students with an opportunity to make a significant difference in another person's life – however big or small. Throughout the year, student supporters visit the Alfred Delp Haus to help maintain a large garden and socialize with residents.

Earth Rescue Club

Earth Rescue is an environment club that works within the school to ensure FIS is following environmentally-friendly practices. The group also raises awareness about important global issues through forest walks, energy conservation days, fundraisers and a special booth during the school's fall Applefest. In the past, Earth Rescue volunteers have raised hundreds of Euros to benefit rhinos and the Frankfurt Zoological Society, as well as tigers, polar bears, wolves, pandas, orangutans and snow leopards.

FIS Ambassadors

FIS Ambassadors are students who have volunteered to organize different activities and projects for new and leaving students. Their goal is to make sure new students are comfortable being at a new school and/or in a new country; that leaving students are given a proper farewell; and to that students moving up from the Elementary School's Grade 5 have a smooth transition to the Upper School.


FIS student involvement with the Oberursel Kinderhaus, which is an open care facility for children aged 6-14 years, is part of an ongoing local service project by the school. The partnership provides FIS students an opportunity enrich the lives of children in the community by playing board games, creating arts and crafts, exploring neighborhood playgrounds, cooking and more.

Students in Action

Some of the ways students' Service Learning comes to life is captured in the pages of our school's magazine, FIS World.
