You don’t know what to do next summer ? You want to live an intense and meaningful experience ? During one week or more, with people from all over the world, join a solidarity workcamp and contribute to Emmaus’ actions.
All together, you’ll live an intense collective experience of solidarity !
What is an Emmaus solidarity workcamp ?
- A commitment
With other young people coming from all over the world, you will help people who are hosted, who work or who volunteer in Emmaus. Thanks to that volunteer work, you will fight with Emmaus against poverty and exclusion in France and abroad.
- Meeting new people
You will also be able to meet and chat with them during trips and activites that would be organized: visiting the area, sport, concerts, picnics, etc. You’ll meet people you’ll maybe never meet somewhere else.
- A discovery
You will discover a whole world : Emmaus’world, a world of solidarity. This experience will enable you to understand how Emmaus works, how the association helps people, its history, its struggles. It will also be an alternative experience :, living within a community.
And concretely, how is it working ?
- When ?
At least one week between June the 15th to September the 15th
In a tent, a mobil-home or a collective room, Emmaüs provides you a bed!
You will share meals offered with the people hosted in Emmaus, the volunteers, workers, and youth from the solidarity work camp
You’re in charge of booking it and paying
You’ll help people to collect donations in the Emmaus structure or throughout the region.
You’ll sort donations (books, clothes, furniture…). They can be sold, recycled…
You’ll work in the Emmaus shops : puting the donations on the shelves, helping customers or being the cashier.
You’ll be involved in projects such as preparing and distributing meals to migrants, gardening, customising objects, decorating buildings …
Thanks to Robin, Cem and Leïla, every year, more than 200 young people participate to a collective experience of solidarity
