About the volunteering opportunity

The smartphone is an indispensable tool in many areas of life: whether it's looking for a job or an apartment, applying to the authorities or writing emails, it can be used for many things that are (also) important for refugees. The residents of a refugee shelter in Pasing would be delighted, if you had the time to support and advise them on how they can, for example, set up email accounts and formulate emails well or make better use of other smartphone functions for their everyday life in Germany.

Your Tasks

The idea is to have a smartphone consultation once a week or every 2 weeks for about 3 months. You will be given a room in the accommodation. The residents can come there and get advice/support from you individually or in a small group.
