Want to make an impact on your community? Whether you’re a native Bruxellois, or have just arrived in Brussels for study and work, you can engage with the community in supporting young refugees during our weekend activities.

SB OverSeas, a nonprofit organization working in Belgium and Lebanon, assisting those escaping conflicts through education and empowerment programs all while providing aid and raising awareness of the humanitarian crisis. Since 2015, we have been active supporting refugees in Brussels, from working with young people arriving to Park Maximillian on an ad-hoc and needs-based basis to now the SB Espoir project that works directly in the accommodation centres that host young asylum-seeking minors and women, conducting life skills and psychosocial support activities that support them for their new life in Brussels.

As an SB Espoir volunteer, you will be participating in our activities during the weekends, this range from sporting to life skills training to arts and crafts. These activities focus on team building and skills training, this way we can support the youth’s inclusion in their new home and develop their skills. However, they not only develop the youth’s skills but also those of our volunteers as it will push you out of your comfort zone working with people from all over the world coming from very different backgrounds which will test your intercultural and communication skills.
