About Big Brothers Big Sisters UtrechtThe Big Brother Big Sister Utrecht Utrecht Foundation is a buddy program for children aged 6-18 from families living on the poverty line. In Utrecht, this applies to 1 in 8 families, who mainly live in the Kanaleneiland, Overvecht and Ondiep neighborhoods.
The program means that a volunteer does something with the child for at least 1 hour per week for at least 1 year that contributes to his / her development.
We are looking for committed adults (21+) who want to make a positive contribution to the quality of life and development of a child who is in a vulnerable situation. The volunteer undertakes weekly activities with the child that both enjoy, such as e.g. exercise together, play a game, craft, go to the playground or a museum. Volunteers are thoroughly screened in advance and receive training and guidance by expert employees, so that the match between child and volunteer is successful.
So: Do you like children and do you enjoy doing something with a child once a week as a buddy? So that there is 1-on1 attention for the child, a bond of friendship arises, and you as a volunteer increase the world of the child! How useful is that? You will be well prepared and guided by training from professionals.
Call us for more information and / or an orientation meeting! The details of contact person Fleur van IJperen can be found under the pink response button.
