SB OverSeas runs an education and integration programme called “SB Espoir“. This weekend program is for unaccompanied refugee minors living in asylum centres in and around Brussels.
These boys and girls have escaped some dangerous circumstances and made it through a terrifying journey alone, only to find themselves in a reception centre in a strange country, with strange languages and customs.
We are looking for dedicated and caring volunteers to commit to this programme, to show the youth a friendly face and to give them the tools to succeed in a new society.
The volunteering programme is part-time. To take part, you must be able to volunteer with us for one afternoon each weekend. Our programme is mostly conducted in English and French, but we can always use more languages to ease communication with the youth, who come from many different parts of the world – so please let us know if you can speak other languages too!
