Number of volunteers:
Most of the projects only host one volunteer.
All participants will be hosted in a host family or at the work place, depending on the project. Be aware that you might have the travel time from your home to your project might take a while. Especially, when your project is situated in a large city (like Brussels, Antwerp or Ghent), it’s very likely that you will be hosted in the suburbs and not in the city centre.
The will to learn the Dutch language is a very important aspect. We expect people to be dedicated to learn Dutch. In most projects the motivation to learn Dutch fast is a requirement. We will offer Dutch language courses, but motivation remains the most important factor to communicate at ease. A good communicative knowledge of English is helpful and sometimes required. At the arrival camp the explanations are done in English. Depending on the volunteer work you want to do, in most projects it is necessary to have a very good level of communication skills in English.
Don’t forget that in Belgium Flanders we focus on the intercultural learning aspect, that you’ll stay with a host family and that for most projects a strong motivation to learn Dutch is necessary.
please make sure to arrive at Brussels national airport – (airport code = BRU) !
(If you book tickets with Air France, this means arriving by train in Brussel south- code ‘ZYR’. Please make sure to avoid that)
All projects are divided into four categories: social projects, cultural projects, vocational projects and projects concerning nature conservation. Each category has some subdivisions. Of course do some projects belong to several categories. Please take a look at the icons that indicate to which categories a certain project belongs.
