About the volunteering opportunity

Teach digital skills to refugees and women with a migration background

Our digital literacy courses are targeting in particular two groups:

  • women with a migration background of all ages (Digital Women Program, on Saturday mornings) and
  • young refugees aged between 17 and 29 years (Digital Youth Program, twice a week, in the evening).

We offer an intro course and a basic computer skills course. We provide our students with the possibility to borrow a laptop from the school and teach topics such as the basics of operating a computer, MS Office, Emails, and Google Tools. Anyone who knows the basics of computer use can definitely teach in these classes!

Whether online or in person, we adapt to the sanitary crisis, and take into account the opinion of our teachers and students.

Your Tasks

We need volunteers to teach our participants and support them in their learning journey and inclusion process. Our volunteers teach in teams about once a week and are supported by the ReDI School with curricula, training and organization. So if you want to master your teaching or presentation skills and want to be part of a fun international network, you've come to the right place!

Whats needed

Above all we need volunteers able to teach computer basics in German, but also teachers who are willing to e.g. review homework, support the main teacher in class and prepare kahoot quizzes.
Teaching at ReDI is a wonderful and rewarding experience, but can also a great challenging sometimes. We are looking for motivated people who would like to get involved in a 4-month project for about 8 hours per month.

You will fit into our team if

you are engaged, ready to help, and enjoy multicultural environments!

German Skills
