Cheerful and positive man has Parkinson's disease and cannot be alone because of the risk of falling. He would like to have someone visit every week on Tuesday afternoons for company and so that his wife can go to choir rehearsals.

This concerns Tuesday afternoons from September between 1:45 PM and 4:30 PM. They are both looking forward to your arrival!

Parenting buddies wanted!

Humanitas Groningen Stad

The Home-Start project was set up for families who could use extra support. Experienced and trained volunteers provide parenting and family support with everyday, light parenting questions. The families themselves indicate where they want support: their question is central. The aim is to increase parents' self-confidence and strengthen their social relationships. Volunteers are well prepared for volunteer work by following a basic training of 5 half days, participating in intervision meetings that are regularly planned and guidance from a coordinator. Participation in the training and meetings also strengthens the connection with Home-Start and the other volunteers, which provides additional depth to volunteer work. We are looking for volunteers in Groningen City and the surrounding area who want to commit to Home-Start and thus contribute to the development of a family. Are you an experienced educator, do you have an affinity with children and can you provide a listening ear? Please contact us for more information. Specific appeal from a family: Do you like to occasionally do a fun activity with your children together with another mother (with a 3-year-old son)? Or to have a nice coffee together and talk about parenting questions that every parent recognizes? Then you are very welcome to meet this single mother from Groningen South.

Buddies for children and young people

Humanitas Groningen Stad

Many children have less opportunity to participate in society for various reasons; due to a disability, poverty, loneliness or other reasons. Beautiful Afternoon Maatjes is a buddy project for children and young people between 4 and 18 years old who are in a vulnerable situation. It is nice for them to regularly receive all the attention and gain new experiences. Their world is expanded. Moreover, this gives the parents a helping hand and relieves them of some of the burden. What it includes: • As a volunteer buddy you come once a week or every 2 weeks to do fun things with the child • This can be at the child's home or you can undertake activities outside the home. For example, going to the museum together, playing a game, making music together, cycling or swimming together • As a buddy you give exclusive attention to the child Do you think it would be fun, but do you find it difficult to combine volunteer work with study or work? Then think about becoming a buddy with your boyfriend, girlfriend, housemate, sister, neighbor, aunt or anyone else. A lot is possible! What we ask: • Patient • Kind to children • Offer a listening ear • Trustworthy • Enterprising • Available for one year; We ask this because it takes time to build a bond of trust with a child and almost all children need long-term buddy contact. What we offer: • Fun and useful volunteer work • Support and guidance by a (voluntary) coordinator • Education • Return and theme meetings • Insurance against damage and accidents Calls: Korrewegwijk, sweet 9 year old boy with a lot of energy. Parents divorced a few years ago, and the children (he has an older brother) are still having a hard time with that. A buddy who can offer a listening ear when he needs it and who can undertake fun activities with him. He takes hockey, taekwondo, guitar lessons. Also enjoys playing football, frisbee, games (chess, uno, on laptop). It's best to meet up on the weekend. Beijum, 12 year old boy. Quiet, sweet boy, goes to special education. He can't go outside alone, there is a group of children in the neighborhood who bully other children. Plays football at Kids United. He has few activities outside of school and is looking for someone to go out with him. De Hoogte, 7 year old boy. There is little attention for him in the family. He is energetic, needs boundaries. He really wants to do activities and go out. This isn't happening now. Parents are very concerned and find it exciting when he goes outside alone. They speak poor Dutch. What would suit is a patient (female) volunteer who stands firmly in her shoes. Haren, nice 15 year old girl. She likes to be at home, is very creative and loves to crochet. She would like to do activities with a buddy that she cannot do with her friends because they do not share the same interests. She also enjoys playing tennis, walking and chatting. Because of her skin color and hair, she is bullied at school, which makes her very sad. She would like a buddy with whom she can talk about this, but the contact will mainly focus on fun activities. The family is from the Dominican Republic and speaks Spanish among themselves. Lewenborg, sweet boy 11 years old. Has been through a lot in his young life. I would like a sporty buddy who will go out with him, play sports with him and with whom he can vent. Because he is overweight, exercise is important to him. Also enjoys gaming, watching TV, TikTok and Snapchat. It is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2 p.m.

Reading to children (primary school age)

Humanitas Groningen Stad

Do you have an affinity with language and reading and do you want to help children with their language development? Set aside an hour once a week to help children read. During the hour it is really about (linguistic) fun. What do you do in the hour? You read aloud or read together and then talk about the story. You also talk to the child about what interests and experiences it. This way you increase the child's vocabulary and knowledge of the world. This hour makes a world of difference in the language development and the chances of a child! We take into account your preferred time and day and location. And support you with an introductory training, personal guidance and an extensive range of books and games. Do you want to know more? Please contact Gerda [email protected] stating: interest as a volunteer

Reading aloud to children with language delay

Humanitas Groningen Stad

Do you like reading and other cultures? Then set aside an hour every week to read to a child at home and/or read together. These are children aged 3 to 12 years old, who have difficulty with reading/language and for whom their parents cannot provide sufficient help. As reading volunteers, you read aloud or read together, talk to the child and follow his or her interests. You also play (language) games. The main thing is that you have an enjoyable hour together. You come to the family home and one of the parents is present. We take your preferences for day, time and cycling distance into account. We match carefully and go along for an introductory meeting. You help a child with language development and thus increase his/her chances. We help you with tips, intro training, support and a well-stocked library and games cupboard. For people who love language and reading and want to help children join society. You are available for a longer period of time, we think it is really important that you and the children build a bond with each other.

Make a lonely elderly person in your neighborhood happy!

Oma's Soep

Would you like to contribute to the life of an elderly person in your area? You can make the difference. Become a volunteer at Grandma's Soep! We are Oma's Soep, a fast-growing social enterprise that combats loneliness among the elderly by bringing young and old together. We do this by organizing old-fashioned fun cooking days, visiting lonely elderly people in the neighborhood and by organizing extraordinary events. We finance all of this by selling our fresh and healthy soups and meals in food service and retail. We are now active in 12+ cities and visit more than a thousand elderly people throughout the Netherlands every week. Our goal is to make as many elderly people happy as possible and you can help us with that! We currently organize two types of activities throughout the Netherlands every week. Cooking days The Grandma's Soup Cooking Days are always about fun and enjoyment. It is a unique combination to make delicious soups together with young and old. During the Cooking Days, vegetables that would otherwise be thrown away are used. The Cooking Days are organized at various locations and participation takes approximately 3 hours. An afternoon full of board games, tall stories, even more jokes and of course delicious soup! Soup-at-home days With the Soep-at-home days we reach the elderly who need company the most. We reach a large group of vulnerable elderly people through local GPs, physiotherapists, the supermarket around the corner and many other supporters. Every week we deliver packages full of our delicious soup, a motivating card and a surprise to the home of the elderly in your area. Take a moment to have a cup of coffee with your neighbor, take a walk or do something together. The Soup-at-home day is organized weekly from a fixed location and participation takes approximately 2-3 hours. Your smile, pleasant chat or short moment of contact can make a world of difference for our elderly. Everyone is welcome at Oma's Soep and participation is free for both volunteers and the elderly. Register by visiting our website for your city for current dates, times and locations. NEW! Grandma's Pen/Call Friend In addition to our weekly activities throughout the Netherlands, we now also bring young and old into contact with each other to become Pen or Call Friends. This means that volunteers and elderly people occasionally send each other a card/letter or call each other, creating a personal bond. In this way we combat loneliness on an even larger scale and at a deeper level. Are you participating? Take a look at our page where all the grandparents who would like to get in touch with someone like you are listed. Discover their hobbies and interests, leave a message with the person who appeals to you, and who knows, you might soon have a new friend to write or call!

Supervisors Friendship Circle Autism

Humanitas

The Autism Friendship Circle is a place where adults with autism can meet each other in a familiar environment. Under the supervision of two to three supervisors - including the coordinator - they have a nice Friday evening every other week (in odd weeks). For example, the supervisors recently devised an escape room, there was a tour of the Forum, a Crazy 88 will soon be released, and two participants recently organized a city walk together. To continue to make all this possible, we are looking for one or two new supervisors. What we ask - Affinity with the target group; - Ability to organize well; - Be creative in devising activities; - Someone who expects to be able to commit for at least a year. The facilitators of the friendship circle are supported by a voluntary coordinator, who is also present as a facilitator. The voluntary coordinator is responsible for all practical matters, such as keeping track of the budget and contacting Humanitas about, for example, reserving rooms. The coordinator is also the person who conducts conversations with new participants and supervisors. The latter in collaboration with the responsible professional from Humanitas.
