What is a Big Volunteer Day?
More than 70 people each month serve in Brussels at a STC Big Volunteer Day – now in 8 neighbourhoods around the city. Our Big Volunteer Day takes place at our hosts, BOZAR.
What we call a BigVolunteerDay is a day we want to dedicate to people who often get overlooked. We gather on a Saturday afternoon per month to Serve the City. You will be attributed to different projects, from distributing food for homeless people to sorting clothes to be donated or even play games with children.
The day will begin at BOZAR, where you will meet fellow volunteers and the project leaders around a presentation of Serve the City. At this moment, you will be told what project you are going to serve and will be on your way with your team.
We then gather at The Brew Dog to debrief and share your experience with fellow volunteers and team leaders around a drink.
You may come with your friends, family or alone and make new friends amongst the volunteers or the people we serve. Everyone that is interested in making a difference is welcome.
Please join us! Many people doing small things together can make a big difference!
