Don’t know what to do this summer? You’d like to do something valuable? You’d like to meet new people? Emmaus’ summer camps are made for you.
The summer camps in a few words :
With other volunteers from all over the world, you will help out people living and working in the groups all year round. Your efforts will help fight poverty and social exclusion in France and beyond.
You will meet, work and get to know new people during your free time where you can visit the region, watch concerts, have picnics… You will meet people you would never meet otherwise!
You’ll learn about a new world, the Emmaus world, a world of solidarity. This experience will let you know how Emmaüs works, how it helps people, its history, its struggles. It also will be an alternative and colective experience.
So what exactly will you be doing?
You’ll help people to colect donations in the Emmaüs structure or throughout the region.
You’ll sort donations (books, clothes, furniture…). They can be sold, recycled…
You’ll work in the Emmaüs shops by shelving donated things, helping customers or being the cashier.
You’ll participate in projects as preparing and distributing meals to migrants, gardening, customising objects, decorating the building…
