About the volunteering opportunity

Working together for educational opportunities: volunteers needed for literacy classes!

How you can help:

If you have the time and commitment, please contact us. You do not have to be a professional teacher, but simply have an enthusiasm for teaching and a willingness to help children. Your support can have a lasting impact on the lives of these children.

Please help us break down educational barriers and create a better future for these children.

Where?

Aufnahmeeinrichtung Biesdorf der Volkssolidarität Berlin

The Biesdorf reception facility of Volkssolidarität Berlin, operated since February 2023, offers space for up to 384 residents. The infrastructure includes 63 ground-level containers, each with two bedrooms, shared showers and bathrooms. Private space is emphasized as bathrooms are shared by only a few people. Green spaces with a sports field, playground and recreational areas are provided. This initial reception facility houses people on benefits under the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act, including in-kind food and hygiene items.

The social team provides daily support, including documentation, communication with authorities and medical appointments. An open playroom is available for the children. Educational work focuses on basic German skills, daily routines and child development. School-age children and parents receive help with school registrations.

Cooperations are planned, such as German courses, vocational courses and cultural encounters. Integration guides assist with cultural translations. Regular consultation hours for neighbors are planned. The team's goal is high-quality care, clear communication and a sense of community.
