Here you may find all the information about our different projects, volunteer opportunities and information that may
concern you as our future volunteer.
All of our projects take place in the field of education. We believe that in this way we are able to incorporate all
of our beliefs and ideas. Working together while bringing an idea of a bigger more cultural world straight into

Our projects in Germany
The "Reinhard-Wallbrecher-Schule" is a school in
Munich for pupils between the 1st and 4th grade.
Volunteers who will receive the opportunity to work here,
will be assigned to one particular class (each grade has 3
different classes). The day of the volunteers usually starts at
8.00 AM, when the children get off the bus and need to
be escorted to the school perimeter.
The day ends at 16.30 when the children are escorted,
once more, to the bus. During the day the volunteer helps in
different areas ranging from helping in lessons such as:
music or art to preparing the break-time and special
activities. The volunteer, along the year, might be asked to
help in fields that are not affiliated with education but are
required for a well and full operated school. These fields
may include house-keeping and kitchen work.
The "Hans-Hofer-Realschule" is a school in Munich
for pupils between the 5th and 10th grade.
Volunteers who work in this school enjoy working with
higher grades while being assigned to a specific class as a
pedagogue or to a specific subject such as English,
math, biology, physics etc. The day of the volunteers,
pedagogues and teachers as one, starts at 8.30 and
ends at 16.30. The day follows a different path, depending
on the work to which the volunteer had been assigned.
Volunteers who will work alongside a specific class will
follow their entire day with that class helping in lessons
and preparing the break time. Teaching the class, although
preparation is needed, is also an option which with time,
demand and experience might become more frequent than
in the beginning.
Volunteers who will work in a specific school-given subject
will work in small groups with pupils who have difficulties with
that specific subject. Usually, most of the morning and early
afternoon are spent on preparing the lessons which will be
taught in small groups during the afternoon.
The school is also very fond of "special activities" such as
special outside activities or special activities that refer to a
specific school-taught subject. In such activities the
volunteers are always welcome to be creative, bring up their
own ideas, take part in the preparation and play part in the
