Volunteers will organize activities for the children staying in the asylum centre. Since these activities depend entirely on the motivation and creativity of the volunteers, creative minds and people with good ideas are more than welcome! Keep in mind that people staying in Ter Dennen are passing a very difficult time and it’s in our hands to make their lives a bit brighter.
Volunteers will work 5 days a week and are free to choose what to do in the weekends.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
The volunteers will either sleep in a youth movement accommodation, with several sleeping rooms. There will be one shower and two toilets exclusively for the volunteers.
