SummaryDon Bosco Rijswijk is a multicultural center on the border of Rijswijk and The Hague. We provide activities for children & young people all year round.
We are looking for volunteers for all kinds of odd jobs in and around the building. Maintenance of the greenery, repair of appliances, maintenance of materials (including bicycles), and perhaps also small creative jobs (painting, sawing). Tasks and working hours are always in consultation. It is a pleasant workplace with many different colleagues and cultures under one roof. Love for children is important, as well as a positive attitude and lots of energy!
About Stichting Don Bosco Rijswijk
Don Bosco's way of working with young people is known as the 'preventive pedagogical system'. It can be summarized with a few key concepts. Presence is its core. Not to 'check' young people, but to 'be there' and thus build a relationship with them.
Love is the binding element in the system. Young people need to feel that attention is being paid to them 'from the inside'. Dialogue means that the working method is not a one-way street. By entering into a dialogue, young people feel taken seriously and are more motivated to bear responsibility – a fourth key concept – for themselves and for others. Stimulating means that young people come to discover and further develop their own possibilities.
Don Bosco took trust for granted. Instead of treating young people as immature and indepen- dent, he gave them his confidence to develop. After all, growing people need space, literally and figuratively: to play, to experiment, but also to make mistakes and correct them again.
