The Hosting Organization

The Association of Compagnons Bâtisseurs, aka CBB, is a non-profit, non-political youth organisation recognised by the French Community of Belgium. The organisation proposes different kinds of activities, mainly based on volunteering and non-formal education: local and international work camps, medium and long term voluntary service, week-end workcamps, leisure time activities for and with disabled people, youth exchanges and local and international trainings. All these activities would not be possible without a network of 420 Belgian volunteers, almost 200 international volunteers during the summer and a team of 9 employees. We are a Youth Organisation and most of our public is aged between 16 and 25 years, even if there is no upper age limit to integrate our groups of volunteers. CBB especially promote an inclusive approach of the public; we strongly believe in the richness of diversity and we take action to favour the heterogeneous character of our groups of volunteers. Therefore, the members of the association (+- 420 people) are from diverse origins and capacities.

The project

The volunteer will be mainly involved in the promotion, preparation, implementation and follow-up of our voluntary projects (workcamps, youth exchanges....). S/he will also work sometimes in partnership with other local youth and social organisations. As part of CBB team, we will expect from him/her to attend collective activities such as staff meeting, GA, team building day...

1) Promotion of CBB activities:

- To prepare and to hold information stands and raising awareness activities in the, youth centers or in fairs in order to present our activities and increase young people's awareness about volunteering, non-formal education and intercultural exchanges;

- According to his/her knowledge, to take care of the virtual promotion of the organisation activities (Facebook, Flickr, website updating, support to the communication officer in general);

2) Preparation of weekend projects, international work camps and youth exchanges:

- To visit organizations that would like to host an international camp organized by CBB;

- To maintain the contact with our partner organisations through Internet communication and to send them regular updates about our projects (mainly about workcamps);

- To receive and answer to the application requests of foreign volunteers who’d like to participate in our projects in Belgium and to follow-up their registration process (this is an important task from April to July that permits to develop a lot of contacts, but can also be considered as very administrative);

- To give a support in the preparation of the activities: preparation of material, participants list, info sheet, food...

3) Co-facilitation of weekend and international work camps International work camps are short-term voluntary projects gathering young people from different countries. During two or three weeks, these young people work on a voluntary basis for a non-profit organizations or a local community. The tasks to realize during an international work camp can be very varied: renovation, construction, environment protection, summer camps for children… In collaboration with the camp leader, the EVS volunteer will help to maintain a good group dynamic and to favour the learning experiences within the participants.

Profile of the volunteer:

Our project is open to anybody motivated by volunteering and who wishes to be involved in our organization and be in touch with people regardless of their nationality, religion, believes, diploma, professional experience. We expect the volunteer to be interested in international volunteering projects, be ready to build an atmosphere of confidence; ready to involve him/herself in the several activities we do; be able to work together with the staff; agree with our philosophy of equality and openness to the differences.

Accommodation: The volunteer will be hosted in a house that s/he will share with other people. The house will be located in the centre of Marche-en-Famenne and will have all the modern facilities. The volunteer will receive a monthly allowance and will take care of the meals by herself/himself. The description of the organisation is available on the EVS database:
