Volunteer Project

In Sprachenakademie Aachen gGmbH’s volunteer project, volunteers support language course participants whose unique situation makes it difficult for them to follow along in German lessons. Often, these are refugees. Currently, most of them originate from Syria; others are from Eritrea, Iraq and Afghanistan.

People of all ages – students as well as professionals and the retired – provide extra tuition for individuals or small groups from one to three times a week. Through this, they make an important contribution to integration.

Sprachenakademie offers an introduction to teaching and supports the work of volunteers throughout. Among other things, we take care of arranging appointments to suit participant needs, room and teaching material availability, and organising experience sharing.
