The program "reboot Team" to bring persons in need of protection with mentors. The Federal government wants to support the volunteers - exactly how remains unclear.
More than half of the population has supported since 2015 refugees in Germany through in-kind or monetary donations or through active participation. A lot of help in the apartment search, and visits to the authorities or give language lessons.
"a Lot of people want to get involved as a volunteer", says the integration Commissioner of the Federal government, Annette Widmann-Mauz. But: Many of the volunteers were from the state left in the lurch: Creative solutions you had to find it alone. For example, the migration researcher Werner schiffauer writes in a guest post for the media service Integration: "Instead of calling for the state to put pressure on him to take from the citizens the magazine in the Hand".the Federal government wants to jump helpers for the page
The so-called refugee crisis dates back several years. Now the Federal government wants to jump volunteers. Because without civil society, Integration would not be possible, says Widmann-Mauz.
"people support people, when it comes to finding the right school, to find job, to find an apartment and also in the Integration in our society, in the Clubs, in the facilities."

"restart in Team" is a pilot project of the Federal Ministry of the interior, the Commissioner for integration and the Federal office for Migration and refugees, BAMF. "Rebooting the Team" - abbreviated NEST, which suggests a comfortable home. 500 persons in need of protection, in the framework of a humanitarian admission procedure, the so-called Resettlement, come to Germany, will be accompanied by mentors. "Charming" is called the Parliamentary state Secretary in the Federal Ministry of the interior, Stephan Mayer, of the pilot project.
mentors for Volunteering
"Because from my point of view, the innovative approach in this program is that the civil society on the one hand, charitable organizations on the other side, but also the state together under one roof to work together when it comes to particularly vulnerable persons in Germany, you also have the prospect of remaining in Germany."
volunteer to do so, what have you done so far, can act as mentors.
"these mentors are not alone, but accompanied you actively on your way, when it comes to provide the refugees with the appropriate assistance."
A new civil society contact point accompanied the application procedure, the BAMF provides a Refugee or a refugee family, or mentors.
"Of these mentors is also expected that you don't agree that they contribute only with time, but that they take on quite a financial obligations. But the state makes the mentors are not alone."
"the support in the support received by the know-how that we have built and this will further support what you want to bring in their own power," explained Annette Widmann-Mauz, and Stephan Mayer.
