Some projects involve direct contact with a disadvantaged public. This means that we ask volunteers to have a beginner/intermediate level of French in order to guarantee a smooth integration in these projects.
Due to the current asylum policy in Belgium, the number and the profile of the residents can be subject to changes beyond control of the centre and JAVVA. We are therefore looking for flexible volunteers with a good capacity for adaptation as the content of the project may differ from the description.
