Volunteer with SB Espoir

The SB Espoir volunteers participate in the activities on the weekend, in order to provide a cultural exchange, build a network and aid in their inclusion in Belgian society.

Propose an Activity or Workshop

Want to propose an activity and/or workshop with SB Espoir?

We work hard to encourage initiatives by individuals and members for activities and workshops with the youth in the Centers.

Local partnerships not only enable the youth to create contacts outside of the centre but also provide the opportunity for engaged individuals and organisations to introduce the youth to activities and practices, which in turn reveal their, sometimes unknown, talent and passion.
