Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I've been doing some research this afternoon and it seems that yes, peoplel can be taught quickly how to tutor others.

NOW, I would require some help in the following please:

  •  who to address this idea to - Länder or Bundesminister?  and if so, for which Ministry?

  •  is there a place I can find some idea of the existing subsidies for this type of idea?

Thanks for your help.  If I get this together, I hope to put together some sort of rough plan in the next week.  

Maybe Eurotrib can become some sort of activists' hatchery as well as a blog.  Wouldn't that be something?

When it comes to language courses for integrating migrants, it looks like the Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge is who you want to talk to. You can get the lowdown here.

This is different from extra instruction in a school context; for that you would need to address the Länder individually.

thanks, dvx.  that's part 1.

Is there some sort of site with existing government subsidies, do you know?

I know several countries that have this.

Sorry mmmm, I don't know of one. The Länder all have their own programs, as do some regions, but I don't know offhand where I would find a central list.

Thanks, I found some names of people that could help.

I am pretty excited about this.  It's nice to act, not just talk.
