About the volunteering opportunity

Municipal politicians are increasingly exposed to hostility. The stress can even lead to resignation from office. In our workshops, we prepare them for the right way to deal with hate and violence. For this we are looking for

volunteers to conduct workshops to support local politicians

Online, at face-to-face events close to home after coordination.

Your Tasks

  • Introduction to the subject "Hate and Violence against Local Politicians* and our workshop formatsĀ 
  • Conduction of digital workshops: Facilitation and communication of information
  • Follow-up: feedback and further development of workshop formats
  • Optional further activities of the association such as research, public relations, etc.

What's needed

Volunteers must be native German speakers.
  • Enthusiasm (and basic understanding) for politics and our liberal, democratic system
  • Interest in the topic area of prevention of hate and violence against local politicians
  • Team spirit, communication skills and enjoyment in dealing with people
  • Experience with digital applications such as Zoom, Google Drive etc.
  • Since we mainly work together digitally, a notebook/PC with a working camera and microphone is a mandatory requirement.

Time required

Regularly
