About the local hosting organizationThis summer, some local youth associations are organizing, for the sixth time, a local cultural event, the 'Festi'Val Fraîcheur', which aims to promote the expression of cultural diversity, to create links between different generations of people, and to encourage young people to become engaged in their community.
About the volunteer workAs a volunteer in this camp, you will work with local young volunteers from various partner organisations to help to prepare the event. The work will first consist of preparing the place where it will take place, as well as building some furniture using recycled material. You will also help to promote the festival in the local community and to host participants. After the event, you will help clear the site of the event, and celebrate the end of the project with the local partners!
Local accommodationYou will sleep on mattresses in a local sociocultural centre. Please bring a sleeping bag with you. The centre has bathrooms and showers, as well as a kitchen. Food will be provided and cooked by the volunteers in turns.
