Join us during the Night of the Refugee

NLvoorelkaar

Can you imagine it? That you have to leave everything behind from one day to the next? And flee headlong with your family, your neighbors or sometimes all alone to a destination that is still unknown? 💔 Never before have so many people fled war, conflict and oppression. By participating in the Night of the Refugee, you commit yourself to them: you draw attention to their stories in a positive way and have your kilometers sponsored. The more money you raise, the more emergency aid we can provide together!! 💪🏼 During the 2023 edition with no fewer than 5,500 participants, more than 1.3 million euros was raised! A fantastic amount! This allowed the Refugee Foundation to give Sudanese refugees, among others, access to clean (drinking) water and sanitary facilities. They also provided emergency aid packages for people who had to flee the earthquake in Turkey and Syria and supported them with, among other things, nutrition in Ethiopia and Burkina Faso. Are you also participating this year? Register individually, with your family, friends, sports club, company or school. Click on 'I'm participating' so that we can explain to you how you can participate!

Probation Service Netherlands is looking for volunteers!

Reclassering Nederland

COSA is a meaningful volunteer task. You support a sex offender in his re-socialization in society. This way you contribute to a safer society! As a volunteer at COSA, you, together with other volunteers, form a social network around a sex offender with the aim of breaking isolation and working towards social inclusion. Volunteers support the person in finding their way in society. This can be done by offering a listening ear, offering practical help and undertaking activities. Drink a cup of coffee somewhere, take a walk and also provide support in developing your own network/hobbies and other activities. In addition, the volunteers are an extra pair of eyes and ears to help the sex offender stay on the right path. A COSA process takes an average of 1.5-2 years and requires a time investment of 2 hours per week. Social isolation When a sex offender returns to society after serving a sentence, unrest often arises. Social isolation, social exclusion and emotional loneliness lurk. COSA is committed, together with volunteers and professionals, to breaking this isolation. They support the sex offender in his reintegration into society. This has proven to be effective in reducing the risk of recidivism. Also become a COSA volunteer COSA is a beautiful, meaningful volunteer task. Volunteers can count on a thorough two-day training in advance. The support and guidance provided by the circle coordinator during the COSA process is also well organised. No specific prior education or background is necessary. We are looking for volunteers in Flevoland (Almere, Lelystad, Zeewolde, Dronten), North Holland (Hilversum, Huizen), Utrecht (city, IJsselstein, Nieuwegein, Houten, Amersfoort, Rhenen, Veenendaal, Zeist).

Will you help Shahed (17) complete his HAVO?

OpenEmbassy

Shahed (17) would like to complete HAVO. Will you help her with Dutch? Thanks to the help of another homeschooling buddy, Shahed was able to complete her VMBO with good grades. Now she is in 4 Havo and can use some extra support again. She is looking for an online TOMaatje who wants to help her successfully complete high school. Do you want to help someone realize her potential? We are looking for a volunteer for Shahed who: - Want to teach online once a week. - Has a good command of the Dutch language. - Is not afraid of the upper secondary school material to ensure that you can make good agreements. In consultation, you agree on a time during the week when you can provide online support. After that, it's time to have fun contact with each other and, above all, do a lot of homework together. How do we support you? You will receive guidance from TOMaatjes at the start, with tips for lesson content and access to the community with other TOMaatjes in it. Every 1-2 months there is an online intervision with lectures from professionals or you can discuss in groups how you can get more out of the tutoring. What do I need for it? - Be open to another culture. - Before you can start, we will request a Certificate of Good Conduct for you free of charge. Once it has arrived, you can start as soon as possible. - Want to help with everything that is covered in the upper years of HAVO. Being a homeschooling buddy is truly a very rewarding task. It starts with tutoring, but many of our volunteers really build a bond with the family where they work. Shahed's previous TOMaatje wrote this about her: "Until last summer holidays, I (as TOMaatje) guided a Syrian girl for 3 years, during which she transitioned from framework to theoretical, with the end result being a T-diploma with an average above 7. A wonderful result that gives me great satisfaction. left, and she can still fall back on me. My reward was her facial expression and that of her parents when I unexpectedly appeared at the graduation ceremony." We hope to welcome you soon if TOMaatje for Shahed or one of the many other children could use help.

Grief Support Coordinator

Humanitas

Support for Mourning is a project that offers people who are struggling with the loss of a loved one comfort and recognition. As a coordinator you fulfill a meaningful role within the project. Support for Mourning is a project of Humanitas Utrecht that offers support to people who have lost a loved one. After the death of a loved one, your life changes and the feeling of loss will be constantly present. In this situation it can be nice to talk to someone outside your own circle about how you feel and what you are experiencing during the grieving process. In this project, volunteers are linked to someone who can use support during the grieving. The volunteer provides support by being there for the participant, offering a listening ear and helping to find ways that best help the participant deal with the loss. They meet every week or every other week for about a year and a half (but it can also be much less long). Together they can determine how often and for how long they see each other. Activities of the coordinator - As a coordinator, you conduct introductory meetings with participants who register. - You connect volunteers to participants and are the first point of contact for them. - As a coordinator, you also guide a participant yourself. - You organize intervision and theme evenings for the volunteers. - You work together with other coordinators and meet each other in biweekly meetings. Who are you? - You are empathetic and motivated to work with mourners - Preferably you have experience with loss through death yourself. - You have good communication and organizational skills. - You can work well together and independently. - You are available for 8 to 10 hours a week for at least a year. What do we offer? - Challenging and meaningful work with a lot of responsibility. - Collaboration with enthusiastic volunteers and professionals from Humanitas. - Training, guidance and intervision. We believe diversity is important and would therefore like to invite everyone, regardless of background, to apply. You are very welcome!

Exercise buddies wanted!

Beweegmaatjes

RESUME We are looking for volunteers who want to exercise or play sports for an hour a week together with vulnerable Utrecht residents, young or old. DETAILED DESCRIPTION You think it is very normal for you to participate in sports and exercise. You do it with pleasure and get satisfaction and energy in return. Unfortunately, this is not self-evident for a large number of fellow Utrecht residents. For example, due to a disability or psychological problems, which means that the threshold for doing something sporty is too high for them. Some people don't dare, don't know the way or are lonely. You can make a difference for these people by guiding them and leading them to appropriate exercise options. WHO ARE WE? Beweegmaatjes links local residents and/or volunteers to exercise together. Exercising together is fun, motivating and healthy. The Beweegmaatjes team is committed to making good matches and providing advice about sports and exercise in the neighborhood. Under the leadership of Vivian, the organization of Beweegmaatjes is largely possible through the efforts of students and volunteers. HOW DOES IT WORK? After registering, we will look for a suitable search buddy and match you. Together with your buddy, you make agreements about which sport you will do, when and how often. You decide how often you volunteer, this can be done with just an hour a week. WHAT DOES IT PROVIDE? You help others to (again) actively participate in daily life. How much that can mean to someone cannot really be expressed in words. So your help is priceless. ARE YOU INTERESTED? Register via the orange button below with I want to help on it, we will contact you and first have an introductory meeting! If you have any questions or would like more information, you can contact us by sending us a message or visit the Sportutrecht website --> in the area --> exercise buddies for our email address. For an extra impression, watch the explanation video of Beweegmaatjes on YouTube on the SportUtrecht channel with the title: Help a local resident get moving, register as an exercise buddy!
