Team Volunteering Project in France!

Location: VEYRE-MONTON, France

Project name: Let’s Create a Space for Relaxation: Inclusion and Interaction!

Hosting organization: Concordia Auvergne

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: Meet children and teenagers who are invisible in our society. Together, break down the barriers of disability and enjoy an enriching human experience! You will be welcomed at the Institut Médico-Educatif (IME) Jean-Louis Pirel, located in the small town of Veyre-Monton. This institute takes in children and teenagers with intellectual disabilities. You will be working alongside them and their educators throughout the project. Your aim will be to create a space for relaxation and interaction for the teenagers and young adults at the IMPro. To do this, you’ll be building a wooden deck as well as wooden modules of various sizes so that the young people can sit down, rest, or play board games. You will spend around thirty hours a week on this project. Working alongside a technical coordinator, you’ll be able to learn or improve your tool-handling skills and take part in a range of manual tasks. 

Volunteers between 18-30 years old (Only Azerbaijani citizenship)

Project period A total of 2 week(s) during the period 12/07/2024 to 26/07/2024

Deadline: 01/07/2024

You will be accompanied by two camp leaders throughout your stay. You will be accommodated in a tent in the neighboring commune of Les Martres-de-Veyre, with access to sanitary facilities and showers nearby. You’ll have access to a multi-purpose room with kitchen facilities for meals and relaxation. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals together. The budget will be allocated to the group leader and you will participate in the preparation of meals, prioritizing products from the market and local producers.


Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn or improve their tool-handling skills by working on the construction of a wooden deck and wooden modules. This may include learning the safe handling of power and hand tools, as well as wood construction techniques. -Inclusion and Awareness: Working alongside children and adolescents with intellectual disabilities offers a unique opportunity to understand the challenges they face and learn strategies to support their social inclusion. Volunteers will develop increased sensitivity to the needs of people with disabilities 


Participants should be interested in manual labor and construction, have a genuine empathy for individuals with intellectual disabilities and a compassionate attitude towards supporting their needs, and be willing to live and work collaboratively towards common goals.
