Welcome to Germany.

We provide asylum seekers with support in starting a new life in Germany by offering internships that can take place even during the asylum application procedure.

A new country, a different culture and a foreign language: We want to help you feel at home in Germany as quickly as possible by offering you some practical opportunities – no matter whether your asylum application has been approved or is still pending. We can give you a chance to experience working life and culture in Germany, along with an opportunity to learn and improve your German language skills – with support from friendly colleagues who will help you gain and expand the know-how you need. You will not be left alone as you start your new life: A "buddy" will be at your side during the internship to help you cope with important questions, decisions and organizational matters.
