Hosted by our French partner Solidarites Jeunesses, this volunteer project is focused on enriching a local community through a small charity-run festival.

WHAT WILL I BE DOING ON THIS PROJECT? 

The Beaufiest'Yval is a festival for families and people of all ages that takes place in Beaufief park in Mazeray. It is organised by the charity Centre De Loisirs de Beaufief that aims to encourage intercultural understanding and community collaboration. 2020 is the 6th year that the charity has hosted international volunteers, with the festival itself celebrating its 10th anniversary. With this project, you will be actively working towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 4: Quality Education.

 

You will work with other local and international volunteers, to prepare and run the festival. Tasks will consist of adapting the park and making it attractive, assisting with putting up gazebos, stages, and stands. During the festival, you'll be tasked with welcoming the public, helping volunteers, as well as have the chance to participate in an open stage. After the event, you will help clean and rearrange the site. Both before and after the festival, you will organise exchanges between the children, hosts, and parents of the Centre de Loisirs. Activites, games, sharing, and collaboration, which will add to this intercultural experience.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You will be staying in tents on site.

WHAT ABOUT LEISURE TIME? 

During your free time, volunteers from Le Centre de Loisirs de Beaufief will propose activities with the aim to immerse you in local life, as well as discover the rich culture and heritage of your surroundings. You will also have the opportunity to explore the region and take advantage of Bernouet lake and its little bar Guinguette, as well as visit towns like La Rochelle and Poitiers.
