The project

In this Project, you will participate in the centre's life and in diverse aspects: community (cook, washing, planning...), intercultural exchanges (locals and association's volunteers encounter)...

The project's purpose is to raise awareness over sustainable development. Caring the garden (seeding, transplanting, hoeing, watering, picking, processing). Upkeep of compost, phytosanitary pool, henhouse, insect-house and bamboo canopy.

Accommodation & food

In collective dormitories (8 places), at the Maison des Bateleurs in Montendre, where you would be all the accommodations at your disposal and a vehicle for transport to the site and also to discover the region. Food will be provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner (you have a budget which camp-leaders will manage and communicate with you throughout the volunteer project). Meals will be prepared, in turn, by you, especially for lunch and dinner while respecting environmental values and local resources, as well as the culture of each and every one (hot and cold dishes as well as vegetarians and vegans will be prepared).

Location & leisure

Montendre, 75 Km from the sea, between Bordeaux and Angoulême.

Leisure Activities: Tour of the region will be collectively planned as you wish: city visits, ocean, museums or the Forest House... Interactions with house volunteers will be provided like pizza party... This will allow you to see how "Solidarités Jeunesses" works.

Project host

Solidarités Jeunesses

Sustainable development, like permanent agriculture, is rooted in the organisation's values and its transversal in our actions. Thus, "Maison des Bateleurs-Solidarités Jeunesses" began creating an environment hub: phytosanitary tank, dry toilets, compost, eco garden, use of natural resources are just examples.
