Introduction and Probationary Period

All volunteers receive an introduction to the work in TTG and to the field of special education and social therapy, depending on their previous experience and the duration of their stay. We will also give a course on intercultural-working together for all foreign newcomers. Please do not underestimate the “cultural shock” when working in a different cultural surrounding. A certain time to adapt and a certain tolerance and cultural openness is required in such culturally/historically/economically different contexts.

Depending on the length of your stay, an evaluation will be done after an initial introduction period. This gives both sides the possibility to confirm their further commitment to working together.

Please read the Charter and Rules and Regulations carefully before committing to working with us (PDF below).

Before inviting any visitors please inform yourself of our visitor policy

Volunteers will receive a booklet with all the information concerning their stay upon arrival.
