We have many voluntary opportunities in Belgium! 

Projects include cultural work such as helping to organise local festivals, manual work such as restoring community heritage sites, and social work such as running activities for asylum seekers in the Belgian Red Cross or for people with physical or mental disabilities in support centres.

Our aim is to encourage international youth exchange as a means of promoting personal development, greater cultural awareness and international understanding. We bring together individuals from around the world to participate in two to four week projects. You will work as part of an international team to support community-based initiatives that would not be possible without their help.

The main short term programme for the summer, with projects in over 60 countries world wide, is available every year at the end on March. Opportunities are available in winter and spring as well. 

You Will Get:

  • experience different cultures, ideas and beliefs and also share your own
  • work alongside local people in local communities, thus gaining a real insight into their country, cultures and traditions
  • learn new skills and broaden your horizons
  • meet new people and explore new places
  • be part of a global movement working towards equality and peace between all people
  • make a difference even when you only have a short amount of time to spare.

What Our Volunteers Say

"The experience was amazing, I learnt so much about other cultures and people. Working with disabled people was so valuable in teaching me about life and what is truly important" - Emma, social project in Belgium

"I benefitted greatly from witnessing the enthusiasm for life which the disabled children share and really enjoyed working with them. Overcoming challenges such as difficulties with communication or maintaining discipline improved my skills in dealing with awkward situations. Living  as a group with other volunteers was particularly rewarding, in that I was able to learn about a wide range of cultures and their varying attitudes." - Sophie, social project in Belgium
