Summary

Enthusiastic young people are wanted for a client platform that stands up for the interests of vulnerable young people in Utrecht.

Detailed description

We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer between 16 and 27 years old who feels called to support and help other young people through their own experience. At U-2B Heard! there are opportunities for everyone to develop themselves in all kinds of areas. Difficulty with the Dutch language? We can help with that too.


Conditions at a glance:

  • between 16 and 27 years
  • enthusiastic and eager to learn
  • dare to be critical
  • can be used flexibly (it sometimes happens that we also work in evenings or on a day other than our working days)
  • available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon
  • it is really important that you yourself are or have been in a vulnerable position (e.g. having large debts, living in shelters, mental healthcare, problems due to chronic illness, LGBTI+ difficulties, etc.)

Don Bosco Spirit / U-2B Heard! Is a client platform for and by vulnerable young people. We stand up for the interests of these young people. We come together and do research into current situations and think about future perspectives. We provide solicited and unsolicited advice to institutions and the Municipality. We broach current themes. The group U-2B Heard! distinguishes itself through the active participation of young people from Utrecht, all from different housing institutions and backgrounds, but with one goal: 'giving a voice and face to the target group in the city of Utrecht.'

We visit training courses, workshops, council meetings, council information evenings, and other meetings that appeal to the target group. We mainly take a critical look at administrators and policymakers, as much as possible in order to improve the situation of vulnerable young people. We also do a lot of fun things together, including Christmas dinner, a visit to the European Parliament, the actions of the Oranjefonds/NL and an annual team-building weekend.
