As the organization is located in the same city as SVI, you will have the opportunity to meet its members as well as participate in all local SVI activities.
Located 30 km from Brussels in the heart of Walloon Brabant, the site of the university of Louvain-la- Neuve welcomes over 20,000 students in its eleven faculties.
Created in 1971 by the university, this city is one of the youngest in Europe. A city in the countryside, it offers an exceptional living environment to students, researchers, professors and inhabitants. Museums, cinemas, theatres, concert and exhibition halls, a swimming pool and sports centre, restaurants and cafés, shops and green spaces: all contribute to the quality of its environment.
Its entirely pedestrianised urban centre allows easy access to all academic buildings and provides an environment where students, researchers, professors and residents meet and form a unique social, cultural and economic fabric.
The volunteer will be a part of the household and will share the values of Côte-à-Côte. He will accompany the people in their daily life, bring his own ideas and his energy in a mixed group of people. Depending on his abilities and his adaptation, the volunteer will perform the following tasks alone or with someone:
Manage daily life in a team setting while em- phasizing the autonomy ability of each resident.
Assist residents in their autonomy and self-suffi-
Organize community activities with the residents.
Ensure safety and well being of the residents by
handling morning and evening activities. Morn- ing: breakfast, preparation for outings, maybe escorting to the place of activity. Evening: din- ner, leisure activities, getting to bed.
