About ᒪ ᐯ ᑎ

Leuven Value Network (ᒪ ᐯ ᑎ) is a non-profit organisation under the umbrella of Leuven MindGate; part of the City of Leuven. ᒪ ᐯ ᑎ accelerates value creation by bringing together the ambitious minds of Leuven via (digital) networking events.

Our vision: We believe that the world’s most complex problems can only be solved by working together.

Our mission: Bringing people together for the better in Leuven. 

Our core team consists roughly of 4 full-timers and +/-25 young potentials that each volunteer contributes to in their own area of expertise. Each member is active in one of four functional teams: HR, Community, Marketing & Business Development.

Why you should join us

As a volunteer, you will join our marketing team in taking our web facilities on WordPress to the next level. Looking to take on even more responsibilities? We got you! At ᒪ ᐯ ᑎ we tailor our roles to your skills and future plans. Want to learn how to lead a team of inspired young people or how to become a project manager? Let’s figure out together where you fit best! 

We can offer you a variety of different experiences to boost your confidence and professional skills. Plus – we’re a pretty fun bunch to hang out with (even if we say so ourselves!)

Who we’re looking for

We are a group of motivated entrepreneurs and are looking for a like-minded person to join the team. Ideally, you recognize yourself in the description below:

  • You are organized and enthusiastic;
  • You can work independently as well as in a team; 
  • You get energy from brainstorming new ideas and taking initiative

Role description

We are looking for someone who is eager to learn and has a proactive mentality. As a volunteer, you will strengthen the marketing team by maintaining and developing the website.

  • Good knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • Knowledge of PHP is a plus
  • Experience with WordPress is a plus
  • Experience with UX / UI is a plus


Working knowledge in any of these areas is a nice plus, but not a must have – we value passion over skills
