Until the end of September applications are invited from anyone who brings with them intercultural and social skills, communications skills, the ability to mediate and resolve conflicts, a cooperative nature, readiness to be deployed and knowledge of the area. It is also important that applicants should live in the specified districts and provide credible evidence of having the time and commitment required. Designed to run for two years, the project was presented at District Council 10 by Nargess Eskandari-Grünberg, Head of the Integration Department, at the end of June.
The aim is that the new district integration support volunteers will assist the residents in asserting their interests. They are to see that the decisions of the City and of the District Council take these into account. Other tasks will include finding people, neighbourhoods, clubs and institutions that already embody successful integration in the district and bringing these together with other groups. “Through deploying district integration support volunteers we aim to reinforce the role of active citizenship as an important pillar of social integration in the locality,” says Nargess Eskandari-Grünberg, Head of the Integration Department.
“The volunteers are intended to provide local help with the exchange of information and with cooperation between the residents, the district council and the Department of Multicultural Affairs in support of the City of Frankfurt’s integration and diversity policy and to make this exchange and cooperation easier.”
