Voor onze Wekelijkse Serving Opportunities kan je gewoon een e-mail te sturen naar de projectleider die je terugvindt op de website. Voor onze Maandelijkse Events en the Big Volunteer Week kan je je een paar weken voor het event online aanmelden.
Je kan de dag(en) kiezen die het best in jouw planning passen.
Ja! We organiseren een aantal keer per jaar een training om projectleider te worden. Onze volgende trainingen vinden plaats op 25 februari, 6 mei en 4 november
English is enough for most projects, however knowledge of French and/or Dutch is often a bonus. However, certain projects that work with children or the elderly or in education require a certain level of French or Dutch. When it is the case, the project page indicates it.
Onze projecten zijn over heel Brussel verspreid. De wijken waar we vooral zitten zijn: de Marollen, Schaarbeek, Sint-Katelijne (Sainte-Catherine), Elsene, Etterbeek, Sint-Gillis, Anderlecht en Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe.
Kinderen onder 18 moeten vergezeld worden door een ouder of voogd ouder dan 21 jaar (met een getekende goedkeuring van de ouders).
Our Serve the City Information Sessions are held at our Head Office, located at Place Van Miel 15A, 1040 Etterbeek.
We try to keep our information sessions short. On average the session takes 30 minutes to complete.
All our Information Sessions are held in English. However, if you don’t speak English, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try and assist with different language requirements.
We will discuss the projects that you are interested in joining as well as giving some background information about Serve the City! Before coming, you can also have a look at our website to find out which projects you would like to do and you can ask us questions about them during the info session.
Here at Serve The City, we welcome first-time volunteers, as there is no better time to start than right now.
At our information sessions, we tell you about the heart behind what we do here at Serve the City. You’ll find out about our vision to see the city transformed and discover more about the available projects. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people in your local community.
It is always an asset to be able to speak multiple languages, however, it’s not essential for many of our projects. There are some projects that do require other language proficiency, so please check out our website for specific project requirements.
You will receive an email confirmation telling you that you are registered to attend the information session that you have selected. If you have not received a confirmation email, please check your spam/junk box in your email account first, then email us at email@example.com if you still didn’t find it.
Of course, you can reschedule by simply signing up for a different info session that suits your timetable better on our website!
Unfortunately, the times listed on the website are currently the only scheduled times available. If you aren’t able to attend any of these times, we recommend attending one of our Big Volunteer Days (on a Saturday) to become familiarised with our projects.
The information sessions are hosted by one of our many great Project Leaders, and many new volunteers like yourself will be attending. So it is a great opportunity to meet and greet fellow volunteers and get to know the heart behind Serve the City.
Yes, we welcome everyone who wants to serve to be involved in our projects. We have lots of different projects to choose from, mornings, during the day, evenings and even weekends. So please feel free to attend one of our information sessions and our Project Leader will be able to provide you with information on projects that suit your schedule.
Serve the City was founded on the ethos of ‘serving like Jesus’, however, is not a religious organization. Our projects are open to people from all different backgrounds and faiths and we welcome everyone to participate in our projects.
Definitely, we really encourage people to use their natural giftings and talents to serve with us. When you attend an information session, please tell the Project Leader what skills you have and your interests and we will be able to match you up to any relevant projects.
We recommend that you allow 1-2 weeks to hear back from your new Project Leader. If you have not heard from them by this time, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know.
We would love it if you do however, it is not essential.
If you are under 18 years of age you will need to be accompanied by an adult/guardian to participate in Serve the City projects.
- Parents/legal guardians can come with their children (but are fully responsible of their care)
- In the case the parents/legal guardians cannot accompany their children, up to 2 teenagers of 15 of age (or more) can be accompanied by an adult of at least 21 years old with the written authorisation of the legal guardians.
If you would like to bring your children along to participate in volunteering, we recommend that you attend a Big Volunteer Day, this is held once a month on a Saturday afternoon. It is recommended not to bring children along to weekly projects.
