Don Bosco is a boarding school made up of 7 big houses which can host up to 120 youth studying in different schools in Brussels.

Full description

Don Bosco was one of the best educators of modern times as he developed success-oriented teaching methods. Every youth has a huge potential. The whole educational work is done by pupil’s parents, teachers, educators and volunteers altogether. The objective is to make sure the youth is in the best conditions to experience in a positive way his abilities. Thus, the youth feels empowered because he realizes that he has true abilities, gains self-esteem and throws himself into his homework because he enjoys doing it. The main objective is to help these young people to achieve academic, human and social success through three cornerstones: ■ Reason: discussing on issues drives them to use their abilities to think, to make decisions and to get involved. ■ Religion: as a way to look for meaning in their lives. ■ Love: which is shown by the educators through being a loving, strict and attentive person and by the youth by being grateful. ■ This teaching method is based on confidence in youths’ positive future.
