Volunteering with refugees
Overcome barriers together!
In the project “Hürdenspringer” in Tempelhof-Schöneberg, you get to know new people and support them in getting a foothold in Berlin. German language skills of B1 level are required to take part in the project.
For shared accommodation, we are looking for volunteers to help us organise sports activities for children and young people!
In various refugee accommodation places, there are recreational activities for children. For these, we are looking for volunteers who already have experience in working with children and young people.
