The first two days will be dedicated to the preparation of activities and the schedule of the project (the people with learning disabilities will arrive on the 20th of July). From the 20th, volunteers, CBB staff and disabled people will spend together 24 hours a day. The CBB staff and the volunteers will be in charge of organizing leisure time (excursions, walks, games, parties, etc.) as well as the daily life and meals for the group. During the project, each volunteer will be responsible to improve the active participation of one or two person with learning disabilities.
If at the beginning you are scared or wondering what are you doing there, don’t worry! After two days you will be amazed by the jarring atmosphere. While respecting the rhythm of each one, we are all there to enjoy ourselves!
Accommodatie en maaltijden
We will share a cottage. We will have several dormitories and all the modern facilities, but you will need to bring your sleeping bag. Meals will depend on your cooking talents (self-catering).
Locatie en vrije tijd
The village of Vergnies is located in a rural area in a well preserved zone in the southern part of Belgium. The biggest cluster of artificial lakes of the country is located within 10km.
Charleroi is located at 50 km.
Be aware that the village is quite isolated.
This project request volunteers with a high level of motivation for the theme of inclusion. The volunteers must have a basic knowledge of French. Previous experience in group animation or in work with people in situation of mental disability is welcome.
In order to demonstrate their motivation and French knowledge, we ask the candidate volunteers:
- to send us a short motivation letter in French (do not be afraid to make mistakes, BUT please do not use any automatic translator!)
- to answer our specific questionnaire (if you do not have it yet, please ask your sending organization to provide it).
We will not confirm any placement request before the analysis of the documents.
The camp language is French.
