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.

Application for Voluntary Work

We especially welcome applications from refugees and migrants.

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.

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:

  • to give information over the phone
  • to welcome clients to the open consultancy hours in the mornings
  • to offer consulters drinks and be approachable for any problems
  • to give information about anything KuB offers
  • to be approachable for all colleagues at KuB
  • to translate and explain letters to consulters (for example from a public office)
  • to look for people, that accompany consulters to public offices and translate for them
  • to support consultants with their work
  • Ratsuchenden Kontakte zu anderen Beratungsstellen oder zu Rechtsanwält*innen geben

Necessary skills for the office work:

  • to be open minded
  • ability to communicate
  • a certain "chaos resistens"
  • sensibility in the contact with people (especially with people being in difficult circumstances)

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 Art project

We are looking for people willing to support the working group art. Interested people should be able to partcipate in the project continuously and over a long period of time.

At the moment we are looking for a reliable person, willing to support our "Art-afternoons" in Kreuzberg. The task is the coordination of a group of volunteers.

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.
