A major educational project for your classroom. You are a teacher, so you can introduce your classroom to a volunteer project. It is a path to responsible citizenship and solidarity, to be lead together – by teachers and Youth Organizations.
Each project is carefully selected to ensure the safety of our volunteers.
A solidarity-based school trip involves:
Specific educational objectives for the volunteer trip:
- Involvement and participation in a local workcamp or project;
- Meeting and sharing daily life in another culture;
- Discovering project management (before the trip);
