Pass the Crayon is a nonprofit organization that fosters self-expression through art workshops for refugee kids. Our mission is to facilitate the integration of refugee children using art as a way of growing their social and emotional skills. Through creative group activities, Pass the Crayon helps build the self-confidence, self-awareness, and relationship building skills needed in order to integrate into a new society. Pass the Crayon believes in stimulating the creativity innate within all children to help them overcome challenges and be full members of German society.More about the organisation

You will make sure that every child participates at the workshop and that you are able to show them the activity of the day. You will also be able to supervise the whole group of kids to make sure that no one is fighting or arguing. The children are free to stay or not, but as long as they are willing to be a part of it, it's our job to make it entertaining and cheerful.
We also ask you to help us place the material, to gather the kids when it starts and also to clean up after each session.
You are able to communicate with children easily but you are also able to put boundaries when needed.
If you speak Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish, Urdu or any language that is spoken by the kids, this would be ideal.
Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Basic German skills“.
Your support is needed on a long-term basis.
