LISEL is a Luxembourgish NGO that offers meeting and support opportunities for international students in Luxembourg. In a young & dynamic atmosphere international students can feel at home by taking part in weekly meetings, sports activities, cultural activities, in discovery trips in the country and to the cities of Metz, Trier, Brussels or others in the neighbouring countries. LISEL supports the students to create a social network in Luxembourg and to find friends for life. The international context makes it easy to discover unknown realities, improve the inter-cultural learning and share experiences. The volunteers help to create a welcoming atmosphere and network between the participants of the activities. They initiate activities and meetings aiming at improving the social contacts between the students and the other inhabitants of LISEL’s intergenerational house. We intend to host 2 volunteers in 202-2021 – both are supposed to cooperate as a team in LISEL’s activities.
