Hosted by our French partner Solidarités Jeunesses, this volunteer project is focused on historical restoration in the heart of France. 

 

WHAT WILL I BE DOING ON THIS PROJECT? 

The borough of Grand-Village-Plage is a charming resort area in the South-West part of Oléron island on the coast of the Atlantic ocean, and is a long-time partner of Solidarités Jeunesses (since 1996).
This project will be focused on Oléron's surviving traditional peasant home that portrays the daily lives of islanders at the end of the 19th century. It's in the hopes of refurbishing Oléron's eco-conscious peasant home, which is set to become a must-see spot, that the community of Oléron island have decided to host international volunteers. With this project, you will be actively working for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You will be staying in tents at the local camping site. 

WHAT ABOUT LEISURE TIME? 

On the island of Oléron, you'll be able to take advantage of everything living by the water has to offer! Fishing, surfing, biking along the ocean, beach volleyball and other activities are all available for you to discover. You'll also to be able to visit certain towns like Rochelle and Rochefort. Activities and excursions will be organized with local residents who can't wait to meet you!
