Meet this year's European volunteers, part one!

Over the next four weeks, we will be introducing you to our European Solidarity Corps volunteers for 2022. This week, we want to introduce you to our first ESC volunteer, Willem.

"Hello everyone, nice to meet you! My name is Willem, I’m 23 years old from Belgium and I’m one of this year’s ESC (European Solidarity Corps) volunteers. I’m a secondary school teacher in English and Dutch.

Whenever I’m not working, you will find me playing guitar, reading a book, doing sports (such as running or cycling), or exploring. I like going on hikes to discover more about nature, but I love taking a stroll through the city just as much. I enjoy visiting museums in order to learn more about history and culture. Last but not least, my favourite pastime is visiting concerts and festivals. I really missed them during the Covid lockdown, but normally I can get free access to a local festival in return for working a couple of shifts.
