Welcome @ Viadrina
IDA – Initiative Deutschunterricht für AsylbewerberInnen (Initiative German language lessons for asylum seekers)
Since 2013 students voluntarily teach German language in centres for asylum seekers in Frankfurt (Oder) or Eisenhüttenstadt. They receive support from the Language Centre of the European University Viadrina.
The initiative is always looking for new members that are interested in teaching – no matter if students, members of staff of the Viadrina or else.
Network „Refugee Support FFO“
Since 2015 the network "Refugee Support FFO" meets for networking of initiatives for refugees within the Viadrina and consists of students and members of staff of the European University and some external guests. General topics are: teaching and research, language lessons and leisure activities for and with refugees as well as counselling for refugees.
The network has a mailing list for information about the projects of the individual groups.
