  • going to the playground with the older children or reading to them
  • watching over the baby's sleep while the mother runs errands, takes a shower in peace, etc.

For this volunteering opportunity, intermediate German skills are required.
You should enjoy and have experience working with infants and young children.

The times are arranged individually and flexibly with the families themselves. Mostly our volunteers go 1-2x per week for 2-3 hours to the families.

Important notice

Your questions and concerns can be clarified during a detailed get-to-know-you meeting. In addition, there are regular training sessions and 2-3x per year team meetings with the other volunteers.
