Info session

SVI is not only a website. It is, above all, volunteers who make the association lively and who like to share their experiences with future volunteers. Every week, we organise information sessions in our offices or elsewhere to help you choose your project or just to get to know SVI better. SVI Belgium and SVI France also regularly participate in various trade fairs, we keep you informed via our newsletter.

Brussels: Every Wednesday at 2pm, in our offices: Boulevard du Roi Albert II 28-30 (17th floor of the WTC tower) in 1000 Brussels. In order to be able to organise this properly, please call us on 02/888.67.13 the day before (at the latest) to let us know that you will be attending the session, especially if you would like specific information about a particular project.

To facilitate the organisation of these sessions, please try to arrive on time (a few minutes early).


Louvain-La-Neuve: The SVI team regularly meets you at the Café-rencontre « Altérez-vous » in Louvain-La-Neuve.

Genval: It is possible to meet Nicolas, our Wallonia coordinator, in our offices in Genval. We are regularly on the move, so it is ESSENTIAL to make an appointment beforehand. Clos des quatre vents, 21 à 1332 Genval. Tel: +32 (0)10 870545

Tournai: We also organise information sessions in Tournai, only on weekends. To make an appointment, you can call this number : +32 (0)69 60 90 65

If you are an association, a youth movement or a school, we can also organise an information session in your premises.

Lille: Annabelle, our SVI France coordinator, organises twice a month information sessions at the “Café IJ Europe et International” at CRIJ in Lille. In a friendly atmosphere, come for a drink and discover the European schemes, the good plans to leave, the possible financing, the ways to find a volunteering project, a job or an internship in Europe.  The CRIJ of Lille is moving, the next meetings will be scheduled for the beginning of the year 2018. It is also possible to meet us in our offices ONLY with an appointment. Our offices are located at 75 rue Léon Gambetta à 59000 Lille.

Paris: We often organise information sessions in Moulin à Café, in the 14th district (metro Pernety – 8 rue Sainte Léonie 75014 Paris).

The SVI offers virtual info sessions in french via live webcam! Since you can not always come to our offices, we thought of setting up this interactive system with video, audio, other volunteers (old and new) and a real live coordinator just for you in your living room.

After a general presentation, you will be able to ask your questions directly by writting or talking to the SVI coordinator. Technically, all you need is a recent version of your browser, a headset with microphone and possibly a webcam.

You can find the schedule of the collective virtual info sessions (via internet) in our agenda, on the homepage of our website. To register, please send an e-mail to [email protected].
