Become a BoT-teacher and a BoT-mentor

Become a mentor:

Mentors play the central role -- of course apart from the children and adolescents -- in “Back on Track.” A mentor can look after one or several children. A preliminary conversation with the child/adolescent and his/her family gives an indication of the educational situation. Under the guidance of the mentor, the child can determine what and at what rhythm he/she wants to learn.

Apply:

  • If Arabic or Kurdish is your mother tongue
  • If you want to get rid of old concepts and learn something new
  • If you work well in a team
  • If you want to dedicate time on a regular basis  to give children a chance at education

In case you want to become a mentor in our team…

… whether you have experience with taking care of children and/or adolescents.

… where you live.

… what languages you speak.

„Data about your language ability can be given by personal assessment”

… and what motivates you to engage yourself in our organization.

Become a teacher

The role of a “Back on Track” teacher differs from the traditional teacher’s role, as there are no lessons in a classroom setting. “Back on Track” teachers, together with the mentors, take on the task of ascertaining the education level of the children and adolescents and optimizing the lesson materials. The actual work is not done together with the teachers, but is done at home either alone or with friends and family. If the child cannot progress without professional help, they ask the teachers. This happens every week at one of the Back on Track locations.

Another task of the teachers is to assess the children when they have finished a subject (we refer to this as a “learning module”) and wish to get a certificate.

Apply

  • if Arabic is your native language and you teach maths, natural sciences, chemistry, physics or Arabic or you teach English, French, Turkish, or Kurdish.
  • If you are open to new learning methods
  • If you work well in a team

We are looking for:

Volunteer worker for labor law inquiries within the organization

Our team lives on the expertise and the commitment of the Syrian employees. Most of them are still in German courses and are funded by the job center. The organization would like to offer them job opportunities and therefore needs Human Resources support.

We are searching for a person that is well-versed in labor law issues in asylum law and help with the building of the organization in general. During work, you should be available for questions or clarification of individual cases.

Assistance in finding interns would also be helpful.

Volunteer for labor law issues within the association

Our team lives from the expertise and commitment of Syrian employees. Most of them are still in German courses and are funded by the Jobcenter. The association would like to discontinue them gradually and therefore needs support in personnel administration.

We are looking for a person who is familiar with employment law issues in asylum law and supports us in the general development of the association. During operation, you should be available for questions or clarification of individual cases.

Also helpful would be assistance in finding interns.

Employees for fundraising and PR

At the moment, we are working exclusively off donations. All of our employees work as volunteers. In order to stabilize our work, we need a financial foundation to pay our employees and to rent an office space. For this we need someone who is knowledgeable about fundraising and who is interested in being involved in our projects. A promotion to a paid job can arise out of this volunteer position.

If you want to speak about any of these positions, please send your application to:
hr@backontracksyria.org.
