This year your challenge, if you accept it, will be to restore, with the other volunteers of the group, the fitness trail on the banks of the Orne River and at the same time to enhance the cultural and historical heritage of the city (orientation tables, information panels). For you, this workcamp will be an opportunity to discover Joeuf, its surroundings and its mining past. But it will also lead you to develop your renovation skills, manual work, manufacturing, cultural mediation... All this while using recycled and environmentally friendly techniques and materials! The work will take place in the morning. Afternoons, evenings and weekends will be dedicated to rest or various activities and games, as well as outings and visits in the area.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated, with the other international volunteers, inside a sports hall. You will sleep in the dojo (judo room) with super comfortable mattresses! Don't forget to take a sleeping bag with you. The toilets, showers and kitchen are adjacent to the sleeping area. You will also have access to the gymnasium to play football or basketball, to a ping-pong room and to a room with a video projector for movie nights! All aspects of collective life (shopping, meal preparation, cleaning) will be managed between you volunteers, based on a functioning that you will have decided in a common way (ex: use of planning, constitution of pairs...). You will be helped in this task by a community life facilitator. The goal: for each volunteer to be an actor in their stay with respect for others and community life. Joeuf volunteers will join you for the day, for work times, activities, and outings.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Joeuf is a wonderful old industrial city! It is located in lush greenery: you can also walk in a green setting and practice many outdoor and sports activities! Come and take advantage of the contacts with the associations and active people of the place: they will make you discover many heritage and historical sites such as the site of Verdun (First World War), the mines of Neufchef (the region has a strong past mining and steel industry) or the city of Metz. 30 minutes from Joeuf, Metz is known for its Gothic cathedral, its medieval quarter, and its summer rich in cultural activities. Many activities and outings will be planned for the afternoons, but you can also make other proposals if you wish.


There is a possibility to access Wi-Fi connection in the premises. Unfortunately, the accommodation and work sites are not accessible for wheelchairs. Every morning 7 youngsters from the city will join you and help with the workcamp. Globally on our teenager workcamps, we chose to book half of the spots for French volunteers. The aim is to allow a maximum of young people to access intercultural learning, to promote volunteer's commitment as a first step and then experience an international workcamp abroad. EXTRA FEES: reduced to 250€ for international volunteers. Pay attention! Our national participants in France pay the regular 360€ of extra fees. International volunteers coming from our partners in other countries than France pay only 250€ of extra fees.
