Léo has joined the IS!

Meet Léo, our new Office Volunteer

Léo arrived at our office of the International Secretariat here in Antwerp on the 15th of September and he will stay with us for one year.

Hello everyone!

My name is Léo, I am 23 years old and I come from Lisieux, Normandy, a city in France. I joined the International Secretariat to take part in the organising of the International Committee Meeting. I will also be the first point of contact for the public, help with the statistics, and take care of the relations with donors.

I have studied psychology, which allows me to talk to and support many different people. These exchanges have helped me to evolve, and continue to do so. I am passionate about understanding the world through the people who live it. Discuss and learn from others. This is what I wanna do.

This is why I am excited to work with the SCI. They want to empower people through popular/non-formal education and contribute to developing a sustainable model of living. They promote peace by organising workcamps, these local projects where egoism gives way to solidarity. I will convey the values of SCI in my daily work and I am glad to do it.

Antwerp seems to be a very peaceful city (maybe not around 5:00 p.m. but still). And biking is like the heart of the city, I will love it!

I hope we will meet soon!
