About the volunteering opportunity

Sponsorships for unaccompanied minor refugees

Many minors live in Hamburg, who had to flee their homeland without a family. For a successful integration a private person of trust at their side, who supports them in realizing their future plans and in arriving in our society, is very helpful.

For its project "Sponsorships for Unaccompanied Minor Refugees", the Hamburg Child Protection Association is constantly looking for new volunteers who are willing to meet with the young person on average once a week and support him or her in everyday life. In most cases, the young person lives in a youth living group spread throughout the city. The minimum duration for a sponsorship is 6 months, but sponsorships usually extend beyond this period.
The child protection agency trains and accompanies the sponsors professionally and pedagogically. For questions, exchange of experience or tips on how to organise a sponsorship, we are available to provide support.

This way you can help

Your Tasks

Sponsorships are meaningful, varied and broaden the horizon! The sponsorship is closely linked to the needs of the young person. The young person usually wishes to have a confidant with whom he can learn German, get to know German culture, get to know Hamburg and go on excursions.

Whats needed

Previous experience or pedagogical qualifications are not required. We conduct a joint meeting and selection interview with all interested volunteers and assume that they are willing to participate in the preparatory training. A flawless, extended police clearance certificate is required for the activity as a sponsor. You will receive further information in the interview.
