The ability to master challenges through development of the self is a fundamental source of well-being. We believe that an optimistic attitude towards life needs to be reinforced. The purpose of After School Hustle is the creation of opportunities for such reinforcement for teenagers.
We want to shape and inspire teenagers in Berlin, so that they can reach their full potential. After School Hustle has the goal of becoming a new pillar of the education system that significantly impacts the lives of teenagers through high quality instruction and inspiration. We teach concrete skills, build confidence and show options in life.
Our core output are workshops. These are experiences where teenagers engage with professionals from various disciplines in practical work. Topics so far included photography, illustration, webdesign, writing, DJing and many more. We belive that with competence comes confidence. And both are essential in life.
After School Hustle is a non-profit corporation in Germany (gemeinnützige Unternehmergestellschaft) since November 2017. Pawel Mordel is the founder, sole equity holder and manager of the firm.
Regular school cannot provide everything a young person needs. We want to fill the gaps. Wasted potential, feelings of uselessness and shame need to be prevented. These issues are of great concern to us and we are highly motivated to devote our work to address them.
All coaches are voluneers. These are people who are competent and successful in relevant professional domains and have a desire to support the next generation. After School Hustle allows them to occasionally teach in their free time and to become part of a responsible community.
