A WALL FOR PEACE

This reconstruction project that associates international and French volunteers will be full of discoveries. Alongside the work, you will be accompanied by dynamic facilitators in order to organise activities and visits in the area. A close link with local organisations will allow you to present your country to local people and spend time with French teenagers.

Workcamps The international workcamp is a very important part in the action undertaken by Solidarites Jeunesses. It is prepared a long time in advance in the different regional offices and the National Secretariat. The international workcamp, open to volunteers of any age, is seen as a tool of local and personal development, tolerance and understanding between the different participants. Furthermore, we lay emphasis on the inclusion of people coming from disadvantaged areas. The workcamps promote the active participation of the local population.
