  • Today, at over 50, a new life is possible. It’s scientifically proven: from the age of fifty, happiness skyrockets, reaching a kind of ecstasy by about 70! Still active or a young retiree, you dare to travel, learn, you want to share and invest in projects that interest you … You have skills and life experience, so why not put them to work for young people who need you?

    Being a volunteer mentor means making a firm commitment to a societal project that makes sense! After being trained by our association, you shall accompany a young person for 2 to 3 hours per week for a period of 6 months. Together, you get to know each other, you define a professional project, look for job offers, training, train to take interviews, talk about labour market law in Belgium, but that’s not all!

    By sharing the experiences you have gained over the course of your career, you are truly giving a young person the chance to build their own career and, without even realising it, bringing new meaning to your own development.

    A word from our mentors!

    This experience has been an opportunity to make enriching encounters. By just giving a little time and sharing one’s experience, one receives so much in return: kindness, trust, friendship, the joy of seeing a young person regain confidence and find his/her way
