Many people in our cities are in need
Many people would like to do something to help, but don’t know where to start
Serve the City connects potential volunteers with meaningful opportunities to get involved
Many people doing small things together makes a big difference
Serve the City is a movement of volunteers. We believe that many people doing small things together makes a big difference.
Serve the City creates events that mobilize many volunteers to serve in simple ways, through sports, music, arts and crafts, meals, friendship and more. We are the connection between the good intentions and talents of people who could volunteer and a meaningful opportunity to get involved.
We connect volunteers to local opportunities
We all see the needs in our city. We believe many people would like to do something to help but don’t know what to do or how to start. We build relationships with local associations that are caring for people in need and create opportunities for volunteers to serve. We exist as matchmakers and our vision is to connect the needs and resources of the city for the good of all.
Many people doing small things together can make a big difference
Serve a meal. Paint a wall. Play football with refugees. Teach dance to children in need. Join a small team of volunteers and cross the line into a refugee centre, a homeless shelter, a soup kitchen, an orphanage and discover that the things you love to do can make a difference in someone’s life.
Serve the City started in Brussels in 2005 with a week of volunteering and is now active or starting in 100 cities around the world. We were not trying to start an organisation. We were just trying to gather people who wanted to help and people from all over the world came to us with the desire to do the same.

I can not change their situation but I can make them feel respected, appreciated, valuable or happy for one day or at least for a few hours. They deserve it and we are able to help them! Dominique Lorentz, volunteer
Taking part in the children’s activity days at Foyer Sud has surely been one of the most rewarding experiences for me. – Theodora Pittara, volunteer

Our experience with the Street Team is always amazing! We feel so proud every time we prepare and distribute food out to the ones who need it. It's definitely something worth doing if one is willing to contribute to the society!
