WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS I NEED TO FULFIL IN ORDER TO GET INVOLVED WITH THIS PROJECT?
Providing help and support for refugees - like any voluntary work should be completed over a prolonged and continuous period of time; so that everyone has the opportunity to understand, to learn and to adapt to each other. Even if you have only a limited amount of free time available, through consultation with the other volunteers, we can arrange an appropriate work schedule that caters best to your needs/abilities.
The requirements we ask of you in fulfilling this position are:
→ openness to other cultures and behaviours
→ an understanding for people who have experienced the trauma of escape, where they have lost everything and have been uprooted from their culture and home
→ helpfulness and willingness
→ assertiveness and perseverance
→ organisational skills
→ Team spirit, as you will be in constant interaction/working with other volunteer helpers
→ Patience, as all things will take time
For some refugee working groups you must submit a criminal record, as you will be supervising minors under the age of 16. This is obtained at the city hall or local public office. When applying for a criminal record through a free carrier (for example, Caritas or Diakonie), it is free of charge for volunteers.
