Join the Refugee Walk as a volunteer!

Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen

The Refugee Walk team is looking for your helping hand! The second edition of the Refugee Walk takes place on Sunday 24 September. To help as many refugees as we can, we are looking for dozens of volunteers on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September. You can assist us with a myriad of things. 

Please fill out the form to let us know when you are available, what you would like to do and what other qualities you have. We will contact you to confirm what we have assigned to you. 

Register here!

We are looking for:

  • Build and break down: Are you a true handyman with a strong back? Then putting up tents and setting up fences and banners will be the right job for you.
  • Secretary: Would you like to put your organizational skills to the test, by sorting the badges, putting up road signs or taking care of paperwork? Then join the secretary team.
  • Reception and organisation: Are you a smooth talker? Can you keep a close eye on the timetable? Do you like to guide people and give them information? Then you are a perfect member for the reception and organisation team.
  • Green team: Do you like to keep things orderly and clean? Then help our Green team clean tables, empty garbage cans and keep the terrain clean and litter-free.
  • Catering: Can you juggle plates without spilling, stir the cooking pots and tap a beer? And all this without cutting your fingers? Then come help us out with catering!
  • Transport: Do you have a driver’s license? Can you keep your cool while transporting all the material and volunteers to the right place at the right time, using your own car? Then join the transport team during the refugee walk.
  • Massage: Do you know precisely what human muscles need after a forty-kilometer walk? Do you have firm and tireless hands? The participants of the refugee walk will without a doubt appreciate your hands-on approach.

We offer:

  • a well-defined schedule;
  • a briefing beforehand, in Genk and Brussels
  • a T-shirt and meals during your shift
  • an insurance for civil liability
  • a reimbursment for the real, proven costs you make, such as transport costs after our approval

The Refugee Walk will only become a real success thanks to its volunteers. We already want to thank you for your enthusiastic efforts as a volunteer on the Refugee Walk!
