Over Grenzen vzw mains Across Borders Association and is an organisation that sets up projects concerning Peace- and Remembrance education for both youths and adults. It wants to connect the past and the present to promote a culture of peace and non-violence. The association uses the Youth Meeting Centre as a guest accommodation and educational centre as a ´base of operations´ for its activities. Because the YMC is situated next to the German military cemetery of Lommel, and in that way connected to the German War Grave Commission, it also supports the (youth) work and educational vision of this organisation. Across Borders Association has no economic, political or religious goals and is politically neutral. the most important activity will be the preparation and execution of new projects, like international red hand day, youth exchanges, German commemoration day Volkstrauertag, art exhibitions, create historical information brochures, etc...


In our accommodation they have their own room with their own bathroom. We will create a shared living room. We also created a small kitchenet with refrigerator for their personal use. They will get the opportunity to eat with the groups, or to cook their own meals. Most of the time there are left over from the kitchen, which they can take. But they can also cook themselves. They will get a bicycle, as transportation. But they can also use the local bus transport which stops 200 meters from our house. The train station is 3 km from our house. A trainticket with 10 rides is provided.


You will do an extra language course at the people’s university of Lommel. The Juleica certificate is a certificate that you can by doing a 5 day course via the German War grave commission. You can only do this one when your German language is okay. When you only speak English we will give you the opportunity to do a similar training course via the Belgium organisation ‘Tumult’. You will do a one day hygiene course, about hygiene rules in kitchens. And you will get the opportunity to enter more international trainings we offer ourselves.


Would be good if he/ she has a driver’s license. Age will be between 18 and 30 years old. We would like a good gender balance. So we will try to get a boy and a girl, when possible. They can come from a big city, but then they do need to know that our house is on a bit of a deserted area. We don’t ask them to have studied already. Open towards a new challenge in a different country. They need to realize that they will be away from home for a long time The volunteer is a social person, who likes to with groups of people.
