The Office for Civic Commitment of the AWO Cologne is a consulting service. People who are willing to volunteer will receive advice and will be placed in organisations that work with volunteers. Further priority will be given to LESEMENTOR Cologne, young volunteers, further education and voluntary refugee work.More about the organisation
In an inpatient day care facility for senior citizens, volunteers for the night café are searched, who help to design, accompany and prepare and follow up the offer. The night café takes place from Monday to Friday from 6 p.m. to midnight and is aimed at dementia patients but also at people without dementia. This offer was established to offer an evening offer to senior citizens whose day-night rhythm is disturbed. Among other things, readings can be held, films can be shown, games evenings can be organized and in the summer also offers in the garden (outside) can be used. The institution is looking forward to new ideas and suggestions!
You can support us in the normal café operation, entertain our guests, play with them or plan events yourself & conduct. There are no limits to your creativity
openness, empathy and sensitivity in dealing with senior citizens
Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Basic German skills“.
