"Lebendige Nachbarschaft" ("Lively Neighbourhood" Project)
Within the project "Lively Neighbourhood" (LeNa), the Nachbarschaftshaus Friedenau (Holsteinische Str. 30, 12161 Berlin) of the Nachbarschaftsheim Schöneberg e.V. offers the opportunity to become involved in voluntary work and brings together new and old Berliners.
Opportunity to get involved in voluntary work
There are already various groups and activities you can join, such as the Technic-C@fé, Intercultural Meeting for Men, multilingual Reading-Café, Garden Group "Kraut&Koriander", language café, becoming a mentor for new Berliners.
In addition to these offers, we organize excursions and activities where you can simply meet new people from the neighbourhood.More about the organisation
Some people have problems with new technology. They are happy if someone helps them use their smartphone or shows them how to surf the Internet safely.
That's why we are looking for volunteers who will take 1 - 3 hours of their time once a month to explain to (mostly) senior people how a smartphone/computer works.
Supporting neighbours seeking help in using the computer or the smartphone.
If you have already successfully explained something to your parents on the computer or smartphone, you are the best person for the job!
Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Medium German skills“.
Due to the restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic, the technology C@fé will not take place on site. But we would like to help the neighbours and now offer help by phone, e-mail and video chat.
If you can imagine helping from home, please contact us.
In addition to direct counselling interviews, we also need support in the preparation of explanatory materials for seniors, which should support counselling by telephone and e-mail.
Your support is needed on a long-term basis.
Am I covered by accident and/or casualty insurance during the project?
For this project, we ask you to arrange an individual meeting.
