Become a volunteer

DoucheFLUX always need volunteers for various activities (services, activities, events, etc.), both for established activities and for those that are just getting started.

But here are some specific needs:

Services

To ensure the smooth running of the day centre services, DoucheFLUX needs 9 volunteers each day.

Working hours:

  • Tuesday to Friday from 8.15 to 12.15
  • Saturday from 10.15 to 16.00
  • Volunteers do not work every day, but according to their availability. A roster is drawn up on the basis of each volunteer’s availability.

To ensure that our volunteers are well prepared, they must first follow a free one-day training course – Tous VIP – Volontairement Impliqués en Pauvreté ! (Everyone is a VIP – Voluntarily Involved in Poverty!) – run by the Belgian Red Cross.

Well-being

Following the success of the hairdressing, manicure, pedicure, skincare and massage services, DoucheFLUX is looking for hairdressersbeauticians and masseurs/masseuses available on Wednesday afternoons, so that we can offer this on a weekly basis.

Communication

In our communications team, we are looking for a meticulous, bilingual French-Dutch speaker (knowledge of English is definitely a plus), who is comfortable writing and who has at least basic experience with WordPress.

Douche solidaire douche

We are looking for a volunteer who can assist in the follow-up and development of the douche solidaire douche.

Ideal profile:

  • strong communication skills
  • bilingual French-Dutch
  • likes to get around Brussels by bike
  • meticulous
  • available on weekdays a few times a month

Activities

Become one of our activities volunteers! DoucheFLUX offers many weekly activities, courses and work shops that would benefit greatly from your energy and enthusiasm!

Concretely, you can:

  • support an activity that is already running (e.g. magazine, radio, sport, yoga …)
  • support an activity that is just getting started (e.g. choir, mobile library, French classes …)
  • propose a new activity, whether a long-term activity or a “one-off”!

Worth knowing: you are not alone! Serena, the coordinator of activities and training, is here to support you and accompany you! Don’t hesitate to contact her by email to share your ideas.

DoucheFLUX MasterClass

The DoucheFLUX MasterClass is part of DoucheFLUX’s actions in terms of “Awareness”. These meetings between homeless people / those living in precarious situations, and school groups and the general public, offer a safe space to  discuss and deconstruct the many prejudices concerning extreme poverty.

We are looking for a coordinator who can start in September 2019.

Ideal profile:

  • sensitive to the theme of extreme poverty
  • ideally bilingual French-Dutch
  • available on weekdays (2 or 3 times per month maximum – during the school year)
  • comfortable working with groups
  • good sense of organisation

If this is you, get in touch with Serena!
