About the volunteering opportunity

Senior citizens from five nursing homes in Berlin Wannsee are taken for a walk on an electric bicycle rickshaw. In the front rickshaw two people can take a seat in front of the rickshaw driver. The rickshaw driver receives training and then regulates his or her commitment independently via a doodle calendar, when, how often and for which nursing home he or she wants to offer rides. 

Your Tasks

To take rickshaw rides for 2 hours once to four times a month for senior citizens. The rickshaw driver independently calls the nursing home to announce the ride, which he has announced in advance by means of a doodle list. The volunteer maintains contact with the rickshaw captain in Wannsee, who coordinates the rickshaw trips.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.
