Hello!! We are an association that provide technical and financial support in housing improvement. Our aim is to work along with the residents through self-help construction projects in order to help them in solving their housing problems, whether they are tenants or owners. We promote and develop voluntary by offering the possibility to participate in our summer workcamps in France, generally in the field of construction, renovation and restoration! We are currently looking for young volunteers in our summer workcamps in France.
Besides their participation on worksites, volunteers will be integrated into the life of the local community by taking part to animations, organization of trips and shared meals with the local people. A workcamp for us means an intensive group experience with intercultural exchanges bringing together young people from different social backgrounds and different countries, that's why our teams are mixed and international!
We are looking for young volunteers (from 18 to 30 years old) in three different workcamps in France, concerning renovation and heritage restoration. Volunteers will have the chance to participate in one of our projects: the construction of a new roof above the old wash house of the village, doing carpentry and roofing works; the renovation of a stone wall with lime mortar according to traditional masonry in order to rebuild the parish enclosure or the restoration of a stone wall in an educative center for professional inclusion for youth.
No training or diploma is required, we are ready to receive everyone who is willing to practice manual works, to participate to intercultural activities and to learn something new!!
French and English
Accommodation varies according to the workcamp: volunteers will be accommodated either in an apartment with a kitchen, bathrooms and rooms to organize the sleeping time or in tents provided by the association, in the local camping. We would also provide for their meals!
