For many elementary school children, learning to read properly means above all a gain in self-confidence and better chances for the future. The KinderHelden Initiative’s Lesetandem+ project is still looking for volunteer mentors. Each mentor accompanies an elementary school child over the course of a year as they learn to read.
If you would like to support a child with a challenging background and give your undivided attention for about 2 hours per week, don’t hesitate to contact the organization!
5 I Support a newcomer in Frankfurt by becoming a tandem partner
Start with a Friend is all about connecting, exchanging and, in the best case, making new friends. The social organization connects newcomers and locals into tandems. In this way, they want to make it easier for newcomers to arrive in Germany and build up a social network.
After an initial face-to-face meeting with the organization, tandem pairs are matched according to interests, needs and backgrounds. The two of you coordinate when you meet, what you do together or what your tandem needs help with, so you are always flexible in your time planning.
