Nachhilfe-Netzwerk Freiburg

Nachhilfe-Netzwerk Freiburg!

(Unfortunately only in German)

Liebe LASler,

Wir sind die Studenteninitiative Nachhilfe Netzwerk Freiburg, die ehrenamtliche Nachhilfe von Freiburger Studenten für benachteiligte Kinder und Jugendliche vermittelt. Dabei kooperieren wir mit sozialen Einrichtungen, Schulen und anderen (Studenten-)Initiativen in Freiburg.

Während wir stets nach neuen NachhilfelehrerInnen suchen, die bereit sind, eine Stunde ihrer Woche für Nachhilfe zu spenden, suchen wir gerade händeringend nach Verstärkung für unser Organisationsteam.

Die Organisationsarbeit reicht von Website-Betreuung über Werbekampagnen zur Organisation von Informationsabenden für zukünftige NachhilfelehrerInnen und beschränkt sich auf eine überschaubare Stundenzahl. 😉 Darüber hinaus habt ihr die Möglichkeit, auch eigenen Ideen einzubringen und zu verfolgen.

Wir würden uns freuen, auch weiterhin ehrenamtlich Nachhilfe in Freiburg vermitteln zu können. Dafür brauchen wir eure Hilfe: Meldet euch unter info@nachhilfe-netzwerk-freiburg.de und erzählt euren Freunden von uns. 1000 Dank!

Bis bald,
das Team vom Nachhilfe Netzwerk Freiburg.
PS: Für mehr Informationen könnt ihr auch auf unserer Website (http://www.nachhilfe-netzwerk-freiburg.de) vorbeischauen.

Teaching German to Refugees

Dear Language Acrobats,
We all have the privilege to be able to speak multiple languages and have all had the experience in our lives to learn at least one foreign language and usually a lot more than that. Also most of you have been living in another country for some time and you know the feeling arriving in a strange, new environment and knowing pretty much nobody there.
That’s what hundreds of refugees are going through right now arriving in Freiburg these weeks. Every week about 100 refugees are coming to Freiburg. Most of them are not speaking German and naturally they feel overwhelmed by what is happening around them. The city and most social workers also feel completely overwhelmed by the tasks and responsibilities that lie ahead of them. As they mostly are concerned with providing accommodation to everybody right now, other things fall short like providing language classes and helping newly arrived refugees orientate in their new environment. But as you all know language is the key prerequisite for any integration to occur! Unfortunately, many refugees spend their first couple months here without having possibilities to learn German or get to know Freiburg.
As I believe all of you are language experts I would like to ask you for your support. For a couple years I have been helping out at one of the refugee homes in Freiburg which has been rapidly expanding in the past few months. They are currently looking for volunteers to teach German and show newly arrived refugees around Freiburg. There are really great people working and living there and I wanted to share with all of you what their plans for the future are and how you could contribute. I want to invite you to join me this Thursday, October 29th at 5 pm in the Common Room. Then I can tell you more about the current situation in Freiburg, about my experiences teaching German to refugees and about ways you can join these efforts!
If you have any questions or cannot make it on Thursday, but still would like to join, then feel free to write me an e-mail: clara.gerstner@online.de
I am looking forward to seeing many of you on Thursday! Have a great week and enjoy the beautiful fall weather!
All the best, Clara
I’ll also post it on Facebook but I would appreciate if you also send it or post it on the website. Thanks! Have a great start in the new week!
Best, Clara

Run for…Executive Organizer

Executive Organizers

As an Executive Organizer and main representative of the Studentscouncil you will work with both the Student Board and the UCF staff. By organizing Studentscouncil Meetings and General Assemblies you will communicate with the Student Body and coordinate student engagement. “The EO office is indeed as all-embracing as it sounds.. which is the most attractive part of it. You get to know a great variety of people and their offices, collect exciting ideas and implement new projects. Even if you don’t have more than two arms – together we do:-) ” (Patrick & Rebekka)
