About the volunteering opportunity

Pupils with a refugee background often face major challenges in everyday school life: In addition to the subject matter, they have to learn a new language, find their way around the Hamburg school system, come up with ideas for the future, master a school-leaving qualification, and, and, and...

Due to the current political situation, over 4200 young refugees from Ukraine are now already attending Hamburgs schools. For the new school year 2022/2023, we will therefore expand our program with Ankerlicht_BlauGelb and focus on accompanying young refugees from Ukraine at two schools, who would like to complete a school degree in the next 1-3 years. Whether they want to complete a German or a Ukrainian degree - their individual educational goal is the focus of the mentoring. In addition, the aim is to facilitate the young people's access to the German language and leisure activities in Hamburg.

Your Tasks

As a volunteer mentor, you will provide 90 minutes of individual support in learning German and other subjects on the premises of our partner schools once a week for one year. Since each mentee has different requirements, the mentors organize the time together individually, according to the needs of the young people and their own abilities. You will accompany the student on his or her educational path and assist in learning with professional support, life experience and motivation!

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.

Special knowledge and skills are not required. During the mentoring period, the mentors are supported and accompanied by SchlauFox in the form of regular counseling, team meetings, professional advice and supervision. In addition, they are sensitized through further training in the areas of interculturality and trauma and prepared for the voluntary commitment.
