About the volunteering opportunity

The Berliner Stadtmission adheres to the valid hygiene protection specifications and also implements other specifications. These are reviewed on an ongoing basis and adjusted as necessary

In June 2021, we started a Re-Use Center for climate-friendly use of resources at Alexanderplatz with project partners in the House of Materialization.

From donations we also receive clothes that are unfortunately not suitable for the clothing store or for sale in our neighborhood shops due to damage, wear marks, etc.. If these clothes have a high material quality, we sell them in our material pool for textile upcycling at a price per kilo.

Your Tasks

You take care of the material issue and the sale of the textiles. The prices are calculated by weight with the help of the cash register - so you don't haveo do much calculating yourself.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

Here's how you'll enjoy this volunteer position: you'll be a friendly face in the store, enjoy interacting with customers, and enjoy being part of a creative team.

Requirements: It is important that you can communicate well in German. Knowledge of English and enjoyment of fashion are an advantage, but not a must.
