Call for volunteers:

  • For the social orientation courses in July, we’re always looking for “Belgians in the classroom” to talk with the youngsters about the customs, habits and ins and outs of living in Belgium.
  • We’re taking the participants out to a weekend break to Koksijde from 28 to 30 August. Helping hands in the kitchen are very welcome.
  • Do you think you could contribute to the project by inviting the youngsters to your organisation or in another way, let us know!
