Many people talk about social equity but do little for it themselves. Would you like to change that and make a difference? If so, the mentoring program SHS2 ("Studenten helfen Schülern & Schüler helfen Schülern) offers you the opportunity to support young people who are preparing for their school-leaving exams. The focus is on Mathematics and the natural sciences.
Together, the association "Chancenwerk" and the Carl von Linde-Akademie developed a module that combines social commitment and professional qualifications. The participants can help children and adolescents to get better education and maybe even pursue an academic career.
Preparation at the Carl von Linde-Akademie
Before starting with practical work at the schools, a mandatory two-day theory course at the Carl von Linde-Akademie provides insight on schools and their social environment. Questions of immigration and interculturality will be addressed and there will also be courses in communication and conflict management.
Usually, the program lasts for half a school year. 3 ECTS points (soft skills) can be granted for the participants, provided that the respective faculty agrees.
Dates and registration
The next courses will take place at the TUM’s main site on January 25 and February 1, 2014. Registration: peter.brenner(at)tum.de
