The Service Volontaire du Travail pour la Wallonie (SVTW) had its beginning in the voluntary work camps in Belgium after the invasion, these were taken over by the government in November 1940, split into Flemish and Wallon parts, the Wallon one became the SVTW and the Flemish one was organized into the Vrijwillige Arbeidsdienst voor Vlaanderen (VAvV).
Service in the SVTW was open to male volunteers between the age of 15 and 25, in 1942 it was expanded to also include a girls section.
