To participate in the my Buddy program you have to be at least 18 years old. Besides that there are no requirements. We want to promote the growing together of our society by using modern formats and conciously use easy to participate programs for the broad civil society
How much time do I have to bring along as a myBuddy?
There are no guidelines from our side as to how much time you have to bring with you. We have deliberately not set a minimum or maximum runtime. You can decide how your friendship will be structured individually. This enables a wide range of people to participate.
Nevertheless it is important for you to be interesteted, and for you to meet your buddy in person.
Do I have to pay for the myBuddy program?
No, participating in myBuddy is completly free. On the contrary, as a myBuddy friendship pairing, you will be able to win tickets, vouchers, free products or even internship placements.
How does the matching process work?
Because we at myBuddy Friendship would like to promote the growing together of our society through intercultural friendships, we will connect "natives" and "immigrants" to myBuddy Friendship pairs.
Here we take into account age, gender, place of residence, interests and hobbies to find a myBuddy that best suits you. In addition, you must of course speak a common language, so that an independent getting to know each other is possible.
Matching always takes place at the end of an application round. Therefore there is no continuous matching. It is currently not possible to choose a myBuddy yourself. However, you can rely on us to assign you a myBuddy among the participants who best matches you based on your registration information.
Can we also register for myBuddy in pairs?
For us to successfully match the participants, we need one person that signs up. But of course you can meet up after the matching in a bigger group. It would also be possible for both of you to register separately and each be assigned a myBuddy, and then meet in a group of four.
Is it possible to be assigned a same-sex myBuddy?
We ask for this point explicitly when you register. Here you can decide for yourself if your myBuddy should be male, female or diverse or if you don't care about the gender. If you can only imagine a myBuddy of the same sex, we will definitely take this into account.
Can you guarantee that a myBuddy will be assigned to me?
Unfortunately, we cannot give you a 100% guarantee for the assignment of a myBuddy, because the matching depends, for example, on whether we receive the same amount of native and immigrant registrations. However, our experience from the last myBuddy round shows that we can find a matching myBuddy in the vast majority of cases.
Should you actually miss out on the current myBuddy round, we will be happy to reserve you with priority for the next round.
The more people sign up, the better the myBuddy principle works. Therefore, be sure to share the myBuddy Friendship Program with your network!
How do I contact my myBuddy after matching?
After the process, you will receive the contact details of your myBuddy via our online platform, which we received during registration. Usually, it will be e-mail address and / or cell phone number. We recommend the written form for the first contact. Start the contact with a nice short introduction and everything else will surely develop by itself.
How can I participate in myBuddy giveaways?
We are currently in the process of setting up an attractive giveaway offer for you, which will include tickets, vouchers, free products as well as internships. Participation will also take place centrally via the myBuddy platform. There you will also find the respective terms and conditions.
To make sure you never miss a giveaway, be sure to follow us on our social media, which you can find linked in the footer of the website.

Can I do the signing up for someone else?
