Some activities in the neighbourhood are also carried out, whose aim is to raise awareness in the local community about asylum seekers.

Volunteers will work with children and with adults.

With children: volunteers will co-organise and co-lead after-school activities, inside or outside the centre, workshops according to their abilities and to the needs of residents (games, DIY workshops, help with homework,…). With adults (and more specifically with women): volunteers will be asked to organise different kind of activities (from sports to social activities or cultural happenings) according to their interests and and possibilities within the centre.

Accommodation in a shared flat in Brussels (volunteers may share a bedroom with another EVS volunteer). 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.
