About the volunteering opportunity

Once a month, we meet in Kreuzberg for the SIB TRAINING TREFF - a two-hour free sports training session with various low-threshold sports.

Together, we want to give people who experience exclusion and stigmatization in everyday life access to sport and leisure activities. The district center F1 on Mehringplatz is very well suited for this - everyone should feel welcome here and be motivated to join in!

With a mixed team of full-time staff and volunteers, we focus on encounters through movement and offer a wide range of simple games: Table tennis, Viking chess, boccia, archery, can throwing, ring toss ... Something different is played each time and participants are invited to contribute their own ideas and wishes.

The TRAINING TREFF is an offer for:

  • Marginalized, homeless people or people affected by extreme poverty and exclusion, addicts.
  • Employees of integration and homelessness services, social workers, caregivers, accompanying persons, students, people interested in exercise and sports, volunteers and neighbors.
  • Regardless of gender identity, national, ethnic, religious and cultural origin, mental or physical disability... From the age of 16.

Your Tasks

  • Help with the set-up (e.g. hanging banners, setting up snack tables, providing music, setting up sports equipment).
  • Join in and play sports with the participants to have a mixed group and be truly inclusive.
  • Organize a small tournament, explain simplified rules, keep score
  • Create a good atmosphere
  • Motivate people to take part
  • Help with dismantling

Important notice
