About the Non-Profit Organisation

IG - InitiativGruppe Interkulturelle Begegnung und Bildung e.V.

Die IG wurde 1971 von engagierten Münchner Bürger*innen gegründet, um Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund zu gleichen Chancen in Schule und Beruf zu verhelfen. Das Projekt "Bürgerschaftliches Engagement für Integration" vermittelt Ehrenamtliche, um Kinder, Jugendliche und Erwachsene bei Schwierigkeiten in der Schule und Ausbildung, beim Erlernen der deutschen Sprache und der beruflichen Integration zu unterstützen. Die Unterstützung findet in Einzel- oder Gruppenbetreuung statt und wird zu Hause bei den Familien oder in den unterschiedlichen IG-Projekten durchgeführt.

About the volunteering opportunity

Reading aloud for children at a primary school

Primary school pupils are read out in small groups. In this way, the children should be inspired for the world of stories and children's books. After the reading aloud, the children will talk about what has been read aloud.

This way you can help

Your Tasks

At regular meetings ( 1 per week / Mon-Fri) you read aloud to students for 45 minutes and talk to them about what you read.

Whats needed

You should enjoy working with children. Before you start your work, we also need an extended police clearance certificate. During the whole time you will have a contact person to whom you can turn with all questions concerning childcare. We also offer free further training courses. For an annual assignment of 50 hours or more, you will receive a lump sum of 125 euros and for 100 hours or more, 250 euros. We will also be happy to issue you with a confirmation of your activity if you have been active with us for at least 3 months :)
