Rayan Yunis

Are you looking for satisfaction in helping younger migrants in learning and education? Or do you want to gain special work experience to help young migrants bridge the education system of their country of origin and the education system in the Netherlands? The Leids Support Desk Migrants has an open vacancy for enthusiastic volunteers / students with a great desire to help people!


Who are we?

LSM is a non-profit organization, offers free services and is committed to serving the public good. We focus on regular migrants (family formers, labor migrants, family migrants, study migrants, older migrants, younger migrants, etc.)

The LSM offers, among other things, (legal) advice, guidance and translations for migrants. In addition, social activities such as the snack bar are organized.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for enthusiastic colleagues who work together on a voluntary basis to help young migrants bridge the education system of their country of origin and the education system in the Netherlands. With this we strive for a positive influence on the learning process of children / young people.

Job description :

In this role you help children and adolescents, whose education is interrupted by migration or flight, to become familiar with the Dutch school system. Missed years away from school, the language barrier, and differences between the school system and the way of teaching in their home country and the Netherlands hinder the education of children and can lead to demotivation and a feeling of inferiority. For example, you support them in doing their homework or with aspects of the curriculum that they find difficult.

We expect:

• That you are willing to help children with their schoolwork in one of the following subjects: mathematics, French, German, English, physics, chemistry, biology and Dutch. Other topics will hopefully be covered by the screen.


• The deadlines will likely be Tuesday or Sunday afternoon / evening, either weekly or once every two weeks, depending on your availability.

• You don't have to be a math genius or speak perfect English! It is more important to listen to the children, find out what their personal obstacles are and encourage them.

• Remember that their learning process can be seriously interrupted and you cannot always rely on prior knowledge - be prepared to explain concepts in different ways.


• That you can have a positive influence on the education of children.


We offer:

• An interesting position in a dynamic cultural, social, pleasant environment.

• Free participation in all cultural activities of the foundation, such as a café, music, concerts, etc.

      • Relevant pedagogical experience and knowledge of the learning and teaching bridging process.

       • Opportunities to learn more about other languages ??& cultures.

      • Opportunities to conduct a sociocultural / learning process research.

      • Flexible hours: working hours and hours are between 2 and 5 hours per week.
