We zijn verheugd dat we binnenkort 2 internationale vrijwilligers zullen mogen verwelkomen. We zoeken vrijwilligers voor sociale media en voor een praktische toepassing in ICT. Beide vrijwilligers zullen samenwerken met onze lokale leden en activisten. 

Jongeren tussen 18 en 30 jaar kunnen zich kandidaat stellen. Mensen uit Europa of het Midden-Oosten, Noord-Afrika zijn welkom. Als ze maar een hart voor Palestina en voor mensenrechten hebben. 

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for 2 ESC volunteers to support our work  in Belgium (Flanders). 

One volunteer for communication (writing for social media and electronic newsletter about life in Palestine) and working  with young activists in Brussels and one with a passion for  ICT  for a smartphone application project ‘Click 4 change’.

Besides the specific tasks there can be ‘one-off’ tasks within the organisation. The tasks are flexible depending on learning goals of the volunteer and the needs of the organisation.

You will be working in our office team (1 part-time staff + 2  management board) which supports the work of the movement. Since Palestina Solidariteit  is a volunteer movement, you will be working in close collaboration with motivated and enthusiastic volunteers.  

Communication and youth work volunteer: 

Writing articles and stories about daily life (cultural, social,…) in Palestine/Israel for social media and the electronic newsletter. Participate and play an active role in a group of young volunteers in Brussels that organise activities(workshops, discussion evenings, movie night, cooking workshop, dabke,…) as different ways to introduce the subject to other groups and organisations.

ICT and volunteer work

For a new campaign  we will start a project ‘Click4Change’, the project is the development of a smartphone application that can crowdsource information and map activities. We are looking for a volunteer with a passion for ICT and human rights. The volunteer will develop the application for the project and play an important role in the whole project.    

Besides the technical ICT work the volunteer will work together with volunteers during a variety of activities. 

Besides these main tasks we have a lot of other activities where the ESC volunteers will be a part of: volunteer day, volunteer weekend, new year’s reception, information stands during summer in Flanders, campaign work, selling Palestinian dates at events in weeks leading up to Ramadan, but also accompanying activists who visit institutions and the European Parliament.
