The SVI is not just a website, it is above all volunteers providing for the association and who like to share their experiences with future volunteers. We organise information session each week in our office or elsewhere to help you chose your project or know the SVI better. The SVI Belgium and the SVI France also regularly participle in various exhibitions. We keep you informed about them on our newsletter.
Due to COVID-19,
our information sessions are held virtually every Monday at 06:00 PM. You can register
now by filing a form available on the “our information sessions” tab.
sessions take place on a fee platform called Google Meet, which is available via
your Gmail address. You can directly ask all the questions you want there!
