Flora Kwong, Chief Operating Officer
Kiron as an employer offers such great flexibility, support and trust in its employees. I'm truly happy to have joined this family.

As a Volunteer German Teacher, you will… 

Support Kiron’s collaborative program with Lingoda that emerged as a response to the war in Ukraine, by giving German language classes to refugees. It is a rewarding, fun & hands-on voluntary social engagement for the public good, creating true impact by breaking down one of the greatest barriers refugees are facing when they try to start a new life in Germany, which is the lack of language skills.



As a volunteer language teacher, you will be giving live German language classes to refugees on A1 and A2 level. The classes happen from mon-fri between 10.00-16.00 and you would be committing as much of your time as you can, with a minimum of 2 hours/week. 



The language classes are designed by Lingoda in a “ready-to-be-picked-up” format, so that you will only need to coordinate your availability with the Lingoda volunteer language coordinator, and then deliver the classes through Zoom. At the beginning of the program, Kiron will provide you with a short training on safeguarding and data protection, to ensure that the students can learn in a safe environment. 



You are…

  • Looking to make a true impact for refugees by teaching them the German language 
  • Looking for a fun & hands-on voluntary social engagement which you can do from the comfort of your own home
  • Culturally aware, sensible & sensitive
  • Speak German on an at least C1 level
  • Speak English on an at least B2 level
  • Available for at least 2 h/week and have stable internet access with a good bandwidth
  • Have ideally had first experience teaching offline and/or online and know how to operate Zoom incl. Annotator. However, prior teaching experience is not a requirement
