About the local hosting organization
We offer some residential projects that deal with children and young adults and their families. Some of them are in institutions for adolescents with a difficult social background and others are organisations that provide leisure time activities. We can also offer some volunteer placements in boarding schools. Every kind of project requires specific abilities.
Project example: Hagenschule
The teaching concept follows the Montessori pedagogy, and they aim at teaching their pupils not only academically, but also educate them for life in general.
Presentation of the programme
The School is an inclusive school that is independently operated and that teaches children from year 1 to year 7 who learn in study groups of mixed ages.
The volunteer will be assisting the teachers during language class and prepare teaching material. The volunteer will assist during free time and supervise work groups in the afternoon.
The project provides an apartment close to the school in which 3 international volunteers live.
The volunteer should be responsible, have a sense of openness and willingness to learn. Basic German skills are appreciated. Experience in the pedagogical field of Montessori or other alternative progressive educational movements are useful.
