Are you active as a volunteer in a Salesian centre, an Oratorio, a youth club or a summer playground? Would you like to get to know Don Bosco volunteers from other countries and learn how you can work together? Are you moved by the current European migration crisis, refugees arriving in Europe, internally displaced people in Ukraine, migrant children active in your youth clubs, ... or do you have a migrant background yourself ?

After almost 8 years, DBYN is soon to release its new website. The previous website was developed in a time when social networking and other web 2.0 applications were in full development. In this time we worked together with a Belgian youth work organisation, specialised in web development for the youth work sector. We were ambitious, integrating many web 2.0 applications allowing us to make simple mash-ups and personalized mailing lists. However, we were surpassed by the rapid development of the internet itself. Many of the functionalities of our website, were soon taken over by Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google apps.
Since 2012 DBYN started to develop dedicated project websites. First with web-application EDICY, but when this European platform changed their business plan, we moved to the WEEBLY platform. After a few years of experience with project websites, we decided to transfer also our homepage to this platform.
