You will participate in a large-scale project. Located on the site of a hamlet, were five cottages used to be inhabited, however due to a lack of water supply this was no longer possible. In 2017, the association looked for and found a new water source that can refuel these cottages. Your mission will be to connect this water source to the cottages. With a technical supervisor, you will discover several types and methods of work: masonry, clearing work, "plumbing"…
You will be staying in individual tents in the hamlet of Vaunières. A sanitary block will be at your disposal with 3 showers and 3 WC. The meals will be shared with all the inhabitants of the village as well as other people and volunteers. In return, along with the rest of the group will help with the dishes and by cleaning the kitchen.
Hameau de Vaunières (7 km from the village of St Julien en Beauchêne, 50 km from Gap). Leisure activities : Located within a remarkable natural environment, Vaunières is an ideal place to go hiking in the mountains and discover the rural life with its farmers’ markets and its producers. In the evenings you will be able to organize games, screenings, international meals and more. Tourist visits can also be arranged. You will also participate of a Music and Cultural Festival organised at the end of July. Summer in the village is very active! As there will be 80 people in the hamlet, this will give you many opportunities to talk and get to know different people.
Located in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes, the association “Les Villages des Jeunes”,, manages, runs and renovates a hosting centre at Vaunières since 1964! It is an old mountain hamlet that has become both a “trampoline” for youth and adults facing hardships, and a welcoming place for French and international volunteers. Vaunières is a vacation destination for families, tourists and people with disabilities who come to enjoy the calmness of the mountain and the place’s dynamic atmosphere. Our workcamps, with volunteers from all countries, allow us to reinforce the cultural diversity of our work, and to open up the site to the world, making it a place where people from all ages and socio-cultural backgrounds agree to meet each other by working together and sharing community life. We hope that you too will join us in an atmosphere of exchange and “do-it-together” that characterizes our project.
