About the volunteering opportunity

Primary school children from Garching are each supported by one volunteer from the surrounding area through the "KinderHelden in München" project. Children who grow up with difficult starting conditions often have numerous challenges to overcome - the more important it is to support these children individually and with heart.

Through our joint project they get a mentor who takes them by the hand for a while so that they can take their life into their own hands and improve their educational opportunities.

Your Tasks

The adults support the children at school, do homework together and learn together. They support the children in their language skills, reading and arithmetic or with their homework and also in the very practical everyday education. The school premises are reserved for this purpose for the first four meetings, after which other public spaces can also be visited. The times can be arranged flexibly with the child.

Most of these meetings take place in person and 1:1 (depending on how it is going to develop with Corona, this is also possible digitally), but group activities (e.g. museum visits) are also planned for the long term.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.

  • You enjoy doing something on a regular basis with a primary school child.
  • You have at least one year to spend as a mentor.
  • You have 2-3 hours per week in the afternoons (excluding holidays) for a child.
  • You would like to support a child at school and through meaningful leisure activities.
  • You are open to new things, for example to other cultures and ways of life.
  • You are reliable, responsible and able to deal with conflict
