Voluntary Work

Our organisation is dependent on the contribution of new people, willing to support the work we are doing at the Kontakt- und Beratungsstelle für Flüchtlinge und Migrant_innen (KuB).

KuB is a self-administrated project, which means we don't have a boss. The employees take decisions jointly, in meetings, considering all important questions. All employees must therefore be able to take responsibility for their own actions and the actions of the whole team.

KuB has many working groups (Fgs). At the moment we are looking for support in the following fields:

Working group Consultancy

We are looking for people that support the refugees and migrants with questions about the procedure for the right of asylum, right of residence and social assistance law. Skills and experiences are helpful for this work:

Working group Support and Translation

Sorry, no translation available

(Stand April 2022)

Working group German Courses

We are looking for volunteer teachers* who have the time and would like to support our work in the field of German as a foreign language (DaF) on a longer-term basis.

You don't need an education as a language teacher and you don't necessarily need any previous teaching experience. The main thing is that you bring joy, commitment, intercultural understanding and open-mindedness as well as 2-3 hours of time per week.

The target group of our language courses are all refugees and migrants* who, for reasons of residence and various other reasons, have no or no easy access to other language courses. Our Alpha & A1 to B2 courses are offered free of charge and unbureaucratically for people of all ages without any barriers to admission, attendance or other barriers.

If you are interested, please contact us at fg-deutschkurse@kub-berlin.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

Project „Understanding bureaucratic forms“

We translate bureaucratic forms in different languages. The translations help refugees and migrants, when applying for benefits of the asylum seeker benefits act (Asylbewerberleistungsgesetz).

We are looking for translaters. At the moment we need particular support with translations in the following languages: Arabic, Dari, Fasi, Russian, Tigrinya, Turkish

Office / Initial contact

We are looking for people that support our work in the office. The office of KuB is the first place all consulters approach. There, all informations gather.

The office is open Monday,Tuesday,Thursday and Friday from 9am till 5/7pm and Wednesday from 1 till 5 pm. The working hours are separated in two shifts: the first shift from 8:30am – 1pm and the second one from 1pm – 5pm.

Our open consultancy hours (for legal advice) are on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. All the consulters enrol themselves at the office. During the afternoon shift we take care of other tasks. We are  approachable for any kind of questions at all times.

The office tasks are pretty diverse. The office- team is responsible for the communication within and outside KuB. Some of our tasks are:

Language skills are helpful, but not required necessarily. At a first meeting we would speak about the extend of your work and further details.

Working group Administration

Because the KuB is now quite big, we also have to take care of a lot of administration. To strengthen our administration team, we are looking for people who have experience with funding acquisition, project management, accounting, controlling and association law.
