The volunteers will work with youth from the region and the professional staff from the festival (200 volunteers on the festival) to set up the performance halls, ensure stewardship during the festival, help with the organization and finally dismantle the site at the end of the festival. The festival takes place on the weekend, the volunteers will work 10 days and will have 3 days off for leisure and discovery at the end. Chiny is a small town located in the Belgian Ardennes, in the Gaume region, near the French border. Various outdoor activities are possible (kayak on the Semois, hiking, visit of the Bouillon castle, the Abbey of Orval).

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The volunteers are accommodated in a fully equipped cottage in Chiny (take your sleeping bag) and the transportation to the workplace is provided by the Festival’ organization. Everyday, the morning and evening meals will be chosen and prepared by the volunteers. The Youth House staff will do the shopping. At lunchtime, meals will be prepared and shared with the staff and other festival volunteers. If the volunteers have specific diets (halal, vegetarian), it is important to tell when registering for the project.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Chiny is a town in the province of Luxembourg, located in Wallonia (French-speaking region of Belgium).


The Chiny Youth House aims at the socio-cultural development of its region, by proposing leisure, discovery and encounter activities to young people. Within this frame, The Youth Center has been participating for several years, in collaboration with the association “Chiny, Cité des Contes”, in the organization of the Chiny Tale Festival. This festival is held for a weekend, in the enchanting setting of the village of Chiny, and offers the public a bunch of storytelling performances in French by international storytellers (Belgium, Niger, Canada, Italy, Japan).
