Help renovate the old rural train station in the pretty village of Louchy-Montfand!
The commune of Louchy-Montfand continues to renovate its historic monuments with a third youth volunteer project. The aim of this new project is to restore the old "tacot" train station, highlighting the history of this rural train which from 1910 to 1949 crossed the beautiful countryside of the Montagne Bourbonnaise between Vichy and Roanne, transporting passengers, merchandise and livestock.

The project will involve restoring the walls of the shelter with traditional lime plaster, on which photos and panels explaining the history of the rural train will then be placed, as well as rebuilding a wooden bench and table to enable local residents and associations to use the site as a meeting place.

Alongside two camp leaders, including a technical animator, who will guide you throughout the project, you'll discover traditional plastering techniques and woodworking, and learn how to handle tools.

Calling all handicraft enthusiasts and history lovers to participate in this workcamp!

Logement et nourriture

You will be accompanied by two camp leaders throughout your stay.
You'll be accommodated in individual tents on a grassy field near the football stadium (at your disposal in the stadium : toilets, showers and changing rooms). You'll have access to the village community centre, with its communal kitchen and large living room. This will be reserved for your group and closed to the public.

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, prioritising products from the market and local producers. WIFI will be available at the town hall.

Situation, loisirs

The village is located a few kilometres away from Saint-Pourcain-sur-Sioule, in the district of Allier, heart of the Bourbonnais region. Small town of 5 000 residents, Saint-Pourçain spreads along the river Sioule in a lovely countryside landscape. During your stay, you will enjoy the town's summery energy and the countryside right on its doorstep (hiking, swimming in the lakes, etc.). During your stay, you will be able to discover the area and take part in local celebrations!

Partenaire

This will be the third year of the village of Louchy-Montfand hosting a volunteer work camp. The commune is very engaged in the project, and local residents are looking forward to seeing you!
Our aim is to introduce volunteers to this village, and to introduce them to the exceptional historical and natural heritage of this rural area.

Itinéraire vers le point de rendez-vous

The meeting point is the SNCF station in VICHY (03) in the late afternoon of 24/07.
From Paris, Clermont-Ferrand or Lyon, several trains a day leave for Vichy.

If possible, please consider using low-carbon emissions’ transportation (train and bus rather than airplane) for a sustainable international workcamp.
The trains are open to booking about 4 months before the departure dates, accessible on the following website: https://www.sncf-connect.com/en-en/

If you are coming first by plane, remember that you will need some time to commute from the airport to the train station, therefore we recommend that you arrive early enough for you not to rush and have a stress free travel.

Commentaires additionnels

Remember to bring work clothes, work shoes and a swimming costume. Nights can be chilly, so bring a good duvet and warm clothes. You can also bring recipes from your country/region, musical instruments and games.

Come and discover the village of Saint-Maurice-de-Rotherens, home to many walkers on their way to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle. You'll be working on the Mauchamp Castle site. The aim of the workcamp will be to develop the surrounding area to enhance the interest in the area and make it more accessible for the municipality. You'll be involved in clearing undergrowth, building steps, installing a guardrail and setting up an orientation table for observing the landscape. You don't need any special skills to take part in this workcamp. All you need is a good amount of motivation and good humour!

Logement et nourriture

You will be accommodated in individual tents, close to a petanque pitch and a football pitch which you can use in your free time. Close to the campsite is the multi-purpose hall where you will use the sanitary facilities. Enclosed showers will be located outside, next to the hall. This area will be equipped for meals and will be used for shelter in case of bad weather or heatwave. Together, you will help to organise community life (cleaning, activities, etc.) and take turns to prepare the meals, using locally sourced produce. We will be favouring vegetarian meals and will be using local, seasonal products, while ensuring that the diets of all participants are respected and that local gastronomy is discovered.

Situation, loisirs

The new municipality of Saint-Genix-Les-Villages is located on the Mont Tournier range, itself situated in the Savoyard Foreland in the Savoie department. Saint-Maurice de Rotherens occupies a vast agricultural and forested plateau on the southern slopes of Mont Tournier (600 to 850m altitude). The village overlooks the Rhône valley to the west, with fine views over the Guiers valley and the Chartreuse massif to the south. Its proximity to the Rhône means you can organise a swim during your stay, in consultation with the activity leaders. A paradise for hikers, the commune is at the junction of 2 long-distance hiking routes: the GR9, which links Vézelay to Italy and is used by pilgrims to Assisi, and the GR65, which is used by pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela coming from Geneva and heading for Le Puy en Velay. If you love hiking, this is the destination for you! The village's history is also marked by the figure of Roberto Clemens Galletti di Cadilhac, known as a pioneer of wireless telegraphy. In the heart of the village, a museum, the Galletti Radio Museum, is dedicated to this pioneer who, in 1912, built the only antenna of its kind in the world, making it possible to correspond with the United States of America from the Fils site.

Partenaire

We are in our first year of partnership with the town hall of Saint-Genix-Les-Villages. Since the 1st of January 2019, the new commune of Saint-Genix-Les-Villages has been created by merging the communes of Gresin, Saint-Genix-sur-Guiers and Saint-Maurice-de-Rotherens. The area offers a rich environment, particularly for walking. The commune is committed to promoting its built heritage. The Mauchamp Castle, owned by Luc Revel, is on the itinerary of the "Balcons de Saint Maurice de Rotherens" hiking trail. It is necessary to take a diversion from the main path to linger around the remains of the castle, which offers a sumptuous panoramic view of the local environment and an insight into the area's medieval history.

Itinéraire vers le point de rendez-vous

Arriving late afternoon at Pont de Beauvoisin station, there is a TER departure every hour from Lyon Part Dieu station (passing through Lyon Part Dieu, accessible from Marseille and Paris among other places).

Commentaires additionnels

When working on site, remember to take closed shoes and clothes that are resistant to dirt.
Nights can be chilly, so remember to bring a warm sleeping bag, possibly a ground sheet or additional mattress for your comfort, and a pillowcase (you can put things in it and easily make a pillow). You should also take suitable clothing (fleece, mackintosh, etc.) for your excursions. Don't forget sun protection (hat, glasses, cream, etc.), a water bottle, your swimming costume for swimming (lakes, water sports centres, etc.), a backpack (in addition to your luggage), comfortable trainers and a pair of flip-flops. You'll also need to pack these essential accessories: a mobile phone charger and a headlamp or torch.
Social events will be organised in collaboration with our activity leaders, according to your wishes. If you'd like to share a little of your culture (recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects, music, etc.), don't hesitate to take a little piece of your country or region in your backpack and a small Bluetooth speaker!

On the last day (09/08), the departure time is usually set in the morning.

Remarques

Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for them personally, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.

Travail

This summer's work will focus on the development of a landscape and the maintenance and restoration of a hiking trail.
The mound is located in the center of the hamlet, a grassy area that is now hindered by stonework structures that are no longer useful. To reduce the impact of construction on nature, the association wishes to offer more natural spaces to the people it welcomes in the hamlet. You will then participate in the creation of a relaxing space in the middle of the village life for all the people who stay here. The structures are being demolished before the summer in order to be able to offer a work site for both landscaping and furniture.
You will also be working on a hiking trail to allow you to discover the natural areas of the Hautes-Alpes, its fauna and flora by rehabilitating the trail (clearing, signposting, etc.) and providing educational support (information panels) along the way. You will thus be able to allow everyone to enjoy this hike again. A specialized technical supervisor will be at your side to provide you with advice and techniques. You will work approximately 30 hours per week in the morning.

Logement et nourriture

You will be in individual tents, which we provide, as well as mattresses, on the camping areas of the hamlet of Vaunières, with access to showers, toilets, and the kitchen. There is no WIFI but you will meet people from all over the world ! You will take turns to cook, so that we can taste several specialties ! Here, we are careful about what we eat. In order to reduce our environmental impact, we try to eat a maximum of local products and we eat meat twice a week. The daily life is organized together: organization of the menus (vegetarian, vegan and other specific diets are possible), shopping, activities, etc. Bring a mattress, a good comforter (the nights can be cold) and a pillow. To be adapted to your needs.

Situation, loisirs

Le Hameau de Vaunières is 23km away from the city of Veynes (05400).

Leisure activities: We will be in an exceptional location to discover the joys of hiking among the mountains, its rivers, its lakes, the farmers markets, and festive events organized in the surrounding villages (depending on programming). As a group, we will decide the activities and outings that we want to set up (subject to distance). Once a week, the welcome center generally organises a musical evening with homemade wood fired pizzas. Once or twice a week, we organize with our vehicles some grocery shopping outings.

Partenaire

This year, we want to do some landscaping in Vaunières, a hamlet like no other!
In the heart of the Hautes Alpes, the association Les Villages des Jeunes has been managing, animating, and renovating the Vaunières welcome center since 1964! It is an old mountain hamlet, which has become a steppingstone place for local youth and adults, but also a place for French and international volunteers. Vaunières is a vacation spot for families, tourists, and groups, who come to enjoy the calm of the mountains and the dynamics of the place.
The workcamps that we organize at Vaunières with volunteers from all over the world allow us to reinforce the cultural diversity of our action and to make this site a place open to the world, where people of all ages and all social and cultural backgrounds agree to meet by working together and sharing a collective life.

The main aim of this project will be to redefine the outdoor circulation areas of the association's site. You'll need to clear some of the overgrown vegetation around the existing steps. You'll create wooden and stone staircases around the central part of the colony. Your group will decide on the number of paths that cross this area, to transform this wasteland into a venue for various events. You'll then put up low stone walls and demarcate the spaces. Particular attention will be paid to preserving the young tree shoots around the steps. You will work 20h/week.

Logement et nourriture

The workcamp will take place in a particularly isolated area, where you will be accommodated on the REV site in individual tents (remember to bring your sleeping bag). You will have access to sanitary facilities close to the camp. What's more, if weather conditions deteriorate too much for camping, a shelter a few meters away will be available. Meals will be provided and prepared in turn by participants.

Situation, loisirs

The project will take place in the southern part of Mont-Lozère, the nearest town is Mende.

Leisure activities : Far from the French metropolises, Lozère is nonetheless a very dynamic region. The region's activities revolve around local festivities, concerts and unspoilt natural areas (mountains, rivers, forests). Shaped by erosion, this territory is criss-crossed by several watercourses, geological formations such as the causses and numerous forests of many species. A wide variety of flora and fauna have been preserved here thanks to the low human density of recent centuries.

Partenaire

The workcamp will take place at the REV's permanent home, a former vacation camp at an altitude of 1,200m. The site is located at the foot of Mont-Lozère in the heart of the Cévennes. The REV took over the site in the spring of 2022 and hopes to make it a place of welcome, exchange and encounter. This project will be part of the transformation of the colony into a socio-cultural living space.

Have fortified castles always made you dream? Get involved and come and live a unique volunteering experience in the Château de Ham!

For several years, Concordia has been helping the Association des Amis du Château de Ham (association of the Friends of Ham Castle) to restore the monument during international volunteer workcamps. This workcamp in the commune continues its dynamic by bringing together local teenagers and international youths, allowing exchanges and meetings to run.
This year, we will be working on landscaping and masonry, a variety of work appropriate to the history of the site. We will continue the development of the "prisoners' garden" and the consolidation of the ruins of the former German kitchen, with pointing and many other techniques that you will learn.

The program will consist of learning masonry techniques and garden design, but above all international and intercultural exchanges, all of this in a good mood!

Logement et nourriture

Accommodation will be in collective tents, with boys and girls separated (don't forget your sleeping bag!)
A village house is at your disposal for the living space, the eating place as well as the toilets and showers. The house also has a washing machine that you can use.
You will share the various collective tasks and prepare meals together.

Situation, loisirs

Ham is a town of about 7,000 inhabitants located in the Hauts-de-France, in the east of the Somme, in the heart of the former Picardie region. The town is 1h30 from Paris, 1h from Amiens and 25 min from Saint-Quentin.

Because of its position during the First World War, the region hosts today many places of memory and commemoration. Other tourist attractions close to the town also reflect the history of the region, such as Péronne (25 min) with its old castle and museum, or Noyon (20 min) with its medieval historic center. A visit to the city of Compiègne (imperial city) and Amiens (capital of Picardie) are also on the visit program!

Partenaire

Built in the 13th century, this medieval fortress was a strategic point to defend the borders during various conflicts. It evolved with time and quickly became a prison welcoming prisoners such as Jeanne d’Arc, or, later, Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte (future Napoleon III). Almost completely destroyed by the German army in 1917, it is now in a state of ruin. For more information, you can consult their website : http://chateau-de-ham.over-blog.com/

Since 1972, the Association des Amis du Château de Ham has been fighting to preserve and enhance the historical site. They host integration work sites, organize flea markets and exhibitions, and even transform the site into a theater. For several years, Concordia has been helping the association with the restoration of the monument through volunteer workcamps involving local and international youth.

Itinéraire vers le point de rendez-vous

Appointment is set at the SNCF train station of TGV Haute Picardie, on 03/08 in the late afternoon. The exact meeting time will be communicated with the roadmap, sent no later than 4 weeks before the start of the project.

Commentaires additionnels

Please bring work clothes for the site and closed shoes. For the accommodation under tents, think of your sleeping bag as well as a sleeping mat for more comfort.
Don't forget your bathing suit in case a swimming pool activity is planned. You can also bring specialties from your country, photos, musical instruments, in short what you like and want to share on this site, either with the local population or with the group.

On the last day (24/08), the departure time is usually set in the morning.

Remarques

Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues happen on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.

Pompey est une commune dans l'Est de la France, qui met beaucoup d'énergie, chaque année, pour accueillir des bénévoles internationaux sur son territoire. Des chantiers y sont organisés depuis 2016, sur plein de thématiques différentes : la restauration du château médiéval, l'entretien d'une ancienne ferme, la rénovation du parcours de santé... Tous ces projets ont un point commun : ils sont situés sur le Plateau de l’Avant-Garde, grand espace sportif et nature sur les hauteurs de la ville. Depuis l'année dernière, un nouvel objectif est né : organiser un chantier complètement respectueux de l'environnement, sur les travaux et la vie collective ! On y va ?

If you're in the mood for nature, the charm of a small village and a warm welcome, come to Réauville in Drôme provençale. The village is dominated by its Rocher de la Vierge, which offers an incomparable panorama of its lavender fields and from which you can see Mont Ventoux. Réauville is a "royal city" in the heart of the Tricastin region, which has experienced greatness and decline over the course of its long history. The village owes its name to the brother of King Saint Louis. It is an ancient village, with some houses dating back to the 15th century that have retained their remarkable architecture, such as the "dessus l'Arc" house. Réauville is the birthplace of the family of President Emile Loubet and Louis Portalier, who was Captain of the Empire (1791). Another historic figure makes the town proud: Albert Séverin Roche. Born in Réauville on 5 March 1895, he was proclaimed "First Soldier of France" by Marshal Foch on 27 November 1918 in Strasbourg. You can still see the house where he was born.
In this historic village, you can help to rebuild a low wall made of local stone. This wall is part of a larger redevelopment project: the new town hall square.

Logement et nourriture

You will be accommodated in individual tents, a stone's throw from the local shop "Chez Paulette". Two areas have been set up to provide single-sex toilet and shower facilities. A room will be equipped for meals and for retreating in case of bad weather (cani-cule, storms). Together, you'll help to organise community life (cleaning, activities, etc.) and take turns preparing meals using locally sourced produce. As far as possible, we will promote vegetarian meals using local, seasonal produce, while ensuring that the diets of all participants are respected, and that local gastronomy is discovered.

Situation, loisirs

Réauville is located in the Drôme department, 8 km from Grignan and 20 km south-east of Montélimar. The "Drôme provençale" tourist region is renowned for its authentic landscapes, lavender and stone villages. During your stay in Réauville, we recommend that you take the royal walk, starting from Place de la Paix, an easy 3km circuit that allows you to discover all the environmental heritage of the commune. You can also discover the fountains, wash-houses, painted decorations of the church and the Museum of Agricultural Memory. The entertainers will work with the whole group to plan visits to the surrounding villages.

Partenaire

Réauville has a population of 400 and is very attached to its heritage and history. This is the first year we've been working together, after numerous exchanges. The village already has an international outlook thanks to its twinning with an Italian village, so it's with a desire to promote exchanges between young people and the notion of interculturality that they are going to welcome this project.

Itinéraire vers le point de rendez-vous

Arrive gare de Pierrelatte 7 août 2024 : 17h which is accessible from Paris Gare Montparnasse, Lyon Part Dieu and Marseille Saint Charles stations. A suggested itinerary and a more precise timetable will be given in the route map that we will send you no later than 4 weeks before the start of the project.

Train reservations can be made approximately 4 months before departure on the SNCF website, link below: https://www.sncf-connect.com/

Commentaires additionnels

For both leisure and work activities, you need to bring clothes that are suited to the climate (temperatures can be very hot in summer). Don't forget sun protection (a hat or cap is essential, sunglasses with a high protection factor, sun cream with a high protection factor, etc.) and a swimming costume in case of swimming in a pool or white-water activities.
For sleeping arrangements, remember to take a duvet and a pillowcase (you can put things in it and easily make a pillow). You should also bring a backpack (in addition to your luggage), comfortable trainers and a pair of flip-flops. You'll also need to pack the following essential accessories: a mobile phone charger, a water bottle, a set of bandages and a headlamp or torch.
Social events will be organised in collaboration with our leaders and according to your wishes. If you'd like to share a little of your culture (recipes, traditional stories, unusual objects, music, etc.), don't hesitate to take a little piece of your country/region in your backpack.

Au cœur d'un charmant petit village bourbonnais, le château de Montaigu-le-Blin est une imposante forteresse médiévale du XIIème, classée Monument Historique. Située sur une petite colline, cette forteresse offre un espace bucolique et intime, proche de la nature avec une belle vue sur les paysages alentours.
Depuis les années 80, des bénévoles participent chaque année à la sauvegarde, la rénovation et à l'animation touristique du château, alors pourquoi pas toi ?
Ces dernières années, la forteresse s'est refaite une beauté ! Les bénévoles ont continué à faire des travaux de maçonnerie traditionelle sur les murs du château et ont développé le potager médiéval au pied de la tour du Seigneur. A vous de prendre le flambeau !


Inside a lovely little French village, the castle of Montaigu le Blin is an impressive medieval fortress, classified as Historical Monument. It is located on the top of a hill, overlooking the countryside. Since 2002, volunteers have been participating, every summer, to the restoration of the castle. These last years, the fortress has regained its beauty! Since the 80s, volunteers come every year to restore and protect the castle. These last couple of years, volunteers restored the castle walls using traditional masonry techniques and developped the medieval vegetable garden at the bottom of the Lord's tower. This year, it's your turn to live an experience back in time!

Commentaires additionnels

Le lieu du chantier ne dispose pas de Wifi et le réseau téléphonique y est faible. Les bénévoles peuvent cependant accéder à une connexion Wifi publique dans le village. Le site du chantier n'est malheureusement pas accessible en fauteuil roulant. Sur l'ensemble de nos chantiers adolescents, nous avons fait le choix de réserver la moitié des places pour des bénévoles français·es. L'objectif : permettre à un maximum de jeunes d'avoir accès à l'apprentissage de l'interculturalité, de favoriser l'engagement bénévole et suite à cette expérience, de développer la mobilité à l'international. Les frais de participation pour les participant·e·s français·e·s sont de 360 euros. Pour des raisons techniques, le site internet ne permet d’afficher que les frais payés par les candidat·e·s français·e·s (360€). Les participant·e·s internationaux·ales payent 250€, hors frais dus à leur structure d'envoi. Pour plus de renseignements, ne pas hésiter à nous contacter.

"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.
Pay attention that there is no wifi access on the workcamp site, the telephone network is also quite low. However, the volunteers will be able to find public wifi in the village. Who needs internet during a Workcamp anyway ? The site is unfortunately not accessible to people in wheelchairs.
Globally on our teenage camps, 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 internatioanl workcamp abroad. "
