What is Serve the City?
Serve the City mobilizes volunteers to show kindness in practical ways to people in need. Serve the City partners with homeless shelters, refugee centers, schools, orphanages, senior homes and other associations and invites volunteers to offer practical help and support.

Serve the City projects are often simple - sports, music, arts and crafts, teaching english, painting, serving food, and cutting hair. We are matchmakers - the connection between the good intentions of people who could serve and a meaningful opportunity to do so.

Serve the City began in Brussels in 2005, and will take place in 20 cities around the world in 2008. Serve the City has regular and ongoing activities, but the highlight of the year is always the summer project in the first week of July.

Volunteers can participate as individuals or as a group, on a one-time basis or as a weekly commitment. Serve the City matches projects and volunteers according to interests, skills and availability.
