About the volunteering opportunity

Support as a mentor for young refugees during their apprenticeship in the health sector

The project "Stay in!" is a project which is funded by the Senate Department for Integration, Labour and Social Affairs.
It was created to support young people on their way into the working life and to avoid dropping out of their apprenticeship. Especially in the health sector, "Die Wille" wants to bring together those who know a lot about the sector with those who are just getting starting and still have their whole professional life ahead of them.

We are currently looking for mentors until the end of December for mentees from the city districts : Charlottenburg, Spandau, Schöneberg, Reinickendorf, Wedding, Hellersdorf, Marzahn, Steglitz and Lichtenberg.

Your Tasks

You will accompany future skilled workers through the 6-month probationary period or through part of the apprenticeship period. Our mentoring programme is a volunteering opportunity which can be arranged individually. It is important to us that the "chemistry is right" and that both participants enjoy being in contact. You can support a person who has made a fresh start in Germany for various reasons. Some have fled with their parents, others have come to Germany alone and are now adults. The trainees have started their apprenticeship in the health sector and with your accompaniment it will be easier for them to pass the probationary period and complete their training!

We currently accompany mentees from e.g. these following areas:

  • Chemical-technical assistant (CTA)
  • occupational therapist
  • Pharmaceutical technical assistant
  • Health & geriatric nurses 

Get involved in a diverse society - start with us and the trainees in your neighbourhood! 

Whats needed

We welcome all those who are interested in supporting young people during their probationary period and further training in the health sector and who may have experience in the health and/or social sector themselves.

We are looking for people with life experience, understanding and know-how, patience, a little bit of time and energy.
