Summary

Our social workers often come into contact with non-native speakers. We guide families and work with refugees. A common language is Arabic.

Detailed description

Arabic translator


Don Bosco Rijswijk is a multicultural center just on the border of Rijswijk and The Hague. We provide activities for children and young people all year round. Cooking workshops, sports activities, holiday activities; and all of this largely supervised by volunteers!


Our social workers often come into contact with non-native speakers. We guide families and work with refugees. A common language is Arabic. We see that many families, volunteers and children do not yet speak much or hardly any Dutch and sometimes encounter difficulties in communicating. Google translate is useful, but often does not give the outcome we want. We are therefore looking for an enthusiastic volunteer who wants to help us translate. It is important that the person speaks Arabic and Dutch or English well. This way we can offer the children and their parents better guidance and ensure a pleasant experience when they visit our youth center. It should also be no problem to request a VOG (certificate of conduct) free of charge through our organization and you are open to new challenges.

This position is not for a fixed part of the week, but is flexible and on-call.

Does this description sound like music to your ears and do you feel at home in it? Would you like to work in a multicultural team of employees and volunteers? Want to play an important role in guiding families, children and volunteers? Send your motivation or CV to [email protected] and we will invite you for a nice introduction!

About Stichting Don Bosco Rijswijk

Don Bosco Rijswijk is a Multicultural Youth Center with youth activities, after-school care, and room rental, focused on Rijswijk and The Hague. With holiday days during the school holidays, and the Vakantiebos during the big school holidays. The center has many indoor and outdoor facilities, making it very suitable for youth, groups and family gatherings.

Method

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.
