Summary

We are looking for a man who has the time and space to invest in contact with 2 teenage boys / refugees who sometimes miss a fatherly contact.

Detailed description

Stichting Vluchteling Onder Dak (VOD) is a voluntary organization that is involved in the reception and guidance of refugees for whom the first request for asylum has been rejected. They are supported with legal and social guidance, housing and living allowance.


For two teenage boys (from a family with a single mother) we are looking for a male buddy, who can regularly make time to do something fun with them, build a trusting relationship and sometimes take on the fatherly role that they to miss.

As a buddy, you meet with the boys at least twice a month and then look at what you are going to do together. The most fun is if you connect to the hobbies and interests of the boys, but you can also introduce them to new sports, activities and events. The boys go to secondary school and speak good Dutch. But it has not always been easy given all the uncertainty they are in now. Someone who can help build their confidence, motivate them to take initiatives and occasionally have a good conversation with them is what they need.


If necessary, you pass on information to VOD regarding the needs of the boys where VOD can help or mediate. Or if you notice that there are certain things going on in the family that require support. You can keep in touch with the buddy coordinator about the well-being of the refugees and you can go for guidance and questions. We also regularly organize drinks or other meetings so that buddies and volunteers can exchange experiences with each other.
