Dear European volunteer,
Welcome in Belgium!
On the on-arrival training (18 October - 23 October 2021) you’ll find the answers! You'll learn about the framework of being a volunteer in Belgium and reflect on your learning needs for your own project. Register below to make sure you have a spot on this training. If you can't wait to meet other volunteers already, feel free to join the Corps volunteers community in Belgium on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/escvolunteersbelgium
This training is for European youngsters that have arrived in Belgium between 13th of September and the 4th of October. If you arrive later than the 4th of October, you are very welcome on our on-arrival training in December (12 - 17).
This on-arrival training is obligatory for all ESC volunteers coming to Belgium for more than 2 months:
We organize this training with a Covid Safe principle. In order to participate in our trainings, participants must be able to demonstrate that they are fully vaccinated, have taken a negative PCR test 48 hours before the start of the training or are in possession of a recovery certificate. All costs related to PCR testing are 100% refunded after the training.
For the volunteers who choose not to follow a residential training, a digital training will be organized in November. Please subscribe as well, you'll receive info about the dates soon.
We require a minimum of 2 full weeks in Belgium to take part in this training.
This training is happening residential. Your group will not exceed 25 participants. If there is another volunteer in your host organisation, that still requires training as well, you'll join together on this training.
It will happen online (on Zoom) if we're unable to organize it residential. You'll get notified 10 days before the start of the training if this change occurs.
Registrations open at the beginning of September and close on the 4th of October. Once you are registered you'll receive an e-mail 2 weeks in advance of the training with more practical details about the training.
Should you or your organisation have any question, please write them in the subscription form or send an email to
We're looking forward meet you!
Greetings from the on-arrival team.
Sabien, Barbara & Thomas
