What is the educational mentoring program?

In the "diebegleiter" program, volunteer adults take on a mentorship. The main goal is to promote equal opportunities in education and integration. To this end, the educational sponsors support students from Erlangen in school topics and in personal development. The contents and the design of the sponsorship are discussed together and are based on the wishes of the godchild and the possibilities of the education sponsors.

What exactly it should be about, when, how often and how long you meet shape together with the godchild.

Whether school tutoring, career orientation or the arrival in Erlangen. They decide together with their godchildren. In an afternoon they do homework together, practice for a job interview or play soccer together or visit a museum. The design of the sponsorship is diverse - just like the abilities, difficulties and interests of you and your sponsored child.

During the entire sponsorship, the educational sponsors are accompanied and supported by the full-time coordinators. They are contact persons for all questions that concern them and offer support. Together we look for solutions for you and your child. This also includes further training or supervision.

We have aroused your interest? Or you need support in school yourself or someone to stand by you? At the bottom you will find our contact form.
