About the volunteering opportunity

We are looking for trainers and childcare providers who would like to join our 8-week Bike & Belong offering for women with migration experience and our additional activities. 

Your Tasks

The childcare workers play with the children while their mothers learn how to ride a bike.

With the help of a training manual and a small train-the-trainer course, the trainers each prepare a training session (warm-up, input, individual training, cool-down) and give the participants assistance with cycling.

In addition are the volunteers we plan various other activities within a framework program (repair workshop, picnic, table tennis, bike tour) - in which the volunteers can also participate.

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, basic German skills are required.

For this commitment you need a basic knowledge of German. Otherwise, you do not need to bring any previous knowledge - we discuss the bike learning concept and the units in a train-the-trainer workshop.

As a childcare provider, you need an extended certificate of good conduct. This is very easy to apply for at the city of Leipzig - we provide you with a form for exemption from costs.

We are happy if you are motivated, want to participate and can do so regularly!

Time required

Project-based
On weekdays, at night

The courses last about 8 weeks and take place 1x a week for two hours, usually in the late afternoon (so a total of 8x2 hours per course).

We start in May with the courses - which then run parallel - Wednesdays and Thursdays. On both days, the offers take place from 16.30-18.30 clock.

Before your commitment as a trainer, you take part in a preparatory workshop. 

Important notice

Since we want to enable a safe space in our offer, we are looking for female volunteers only.

Where?

Bike Bridge

We use cycling as a tool to create encounters between refugees, people with migration experience and the local population. We want to bring people together and strengthen togetherness.
