About the volunteering opportunity

People on the move often live in collective accommodations for several years. However, more and more residents are being granted residence status. This enables them to move into their own apartment. However, many still have difficulty finding their way around the difficult housing market on their own and would like support. Therefore, we are looking for people who support our residents in finding their way on the housing market. 

As an organization, we offer: 

  • Documents to assist in the search for housing
  • Insight and access to the refugee accommodation
  • Opportunity for exchange for those involved
  • Fixed contact person in the accommodation
  • Free training 
  • Accident and liability insurance

Your Tasks

  • Regular meetings in the accommodation by arrangement (eg. 1x weekly)
  • Get an overview of the housing market (Internet, newspaper, broker, Sowon)
  • Collect and prepare documents 
  • Send applications
  • Accompany to apartment viewings
  • Support with email traffic

What's needed

For this volunteering opportunity, advanced German skills are required.
  • Very good knowledge of German
  • Intercultural competence (open, unprejudiced, interested)

Time required

Regularly
Approx. 2 hours per week.

You meet 1 - 2 times a week. The times you meet are decided on independently.

Important notice

We are looking for apartment patrons for the residents of various accommodations in the Munich area (see map on the 2nd picture). Contact us via vostel.de, then we will see which location is easy to reach for you. 

In addition, an extended certificate of good conduct is required. We will be happy to assist you with the application free of charge.
