Support us

At Devugees people who had to flee from crisis areas and who want to build a new future will learn within only one year how to become a Web-Developer.

We qualifiy in training classes, provide the necessary hardware and digital learning aids as well as a relevant mentoring and buddy system.


Our supporters

These companies give our participants the opportunity to experience the real startup feeling in Berlin. Web developers, founders and HR professionals give us an indside to their companies, talk about their work life and show us what web development is all about.

 


Become a buddy - Be approachable

Devugees doesn´t only qualify refugees but also helps to integrate them. To keep ambitions and motivation of the participants high, we want to place a spiritual coach, a buddy, at their sides - you!

 

Become a buddy

Become part of the integration process. Take them by the hand. Light their path and keep them focused on their goals.

 

The requirements

Apply as a buddy at Devugees when you have at least three years of practical experience in one or more of the following technologies or programming languages:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Bootstrap
  • jQuery
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Javascript  

Regardless of how much time you can commit, we are happy about everyone who can support our participants technically. Whether as a regular available buddy or hourly for questions in between.


Material contributions - Hardware and Contributions

We want to help the participants to become up-to-date professional web developers. That's why we need up-to-date hardware. All donations of this kind are more than welcome anytime! People who learn a lot need refreshment. Coffee and food are highly appreciated! ;-)

 


Companies can help - Active contribution to the integration

To prepare our Devugees-protégés the best way we can for the real working world, we want to grant them deep insights into the Berlin tech-companies. You as a company can support the project by sending buddys, taking over Devugees-interns or even express the willingness to employ succesfull Devugees-graduates. This way you can contribute actively to the integration of refugees. Ideas for further cooperations are steadily welcomed! 


Our partners and supporters

Big projects can only be implemented with backing support. We would like to thank our partners and supporters who look forward to applications from our first future graduates. 

 

Special thanks go to the founding service team of the Humboldt University (HU). Without their big support and readiness to help we could not have started yet. Currently, our Devugees office and classroom arise in the HU founding house. Thank you for giving Devugees a home!
