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? 

Melle, a small town, is known for its extraordinary local heritage which includes sites like a UNESCO roman church, a collection of old motorbikes and silver mines dating back to the middle ages. The town of Melle is a loyal partner of Solidarités Jeunesses and has hosted several volunteer projects over the past few years. For many years, this small community have worked hard to protect the local environment and biodiversity. With this project, you will be actively working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
Tasks will be focused on improving this protected zone of fauna and flora. You will construct facilities within the area dedicated to the protection of bats and dragonflies. You'll also install cavities to promote the hibernation and hosting of bats.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You'll be staying in Melle's tourist home which is located in the centre of the village. Food will be provided and volunteers will take turns preparing meals.

WHAT ABOUT LEISURE TIME? 

During your free time, you will have the opportunity to attend summer concerts and shows and discover the international biannual exhibition of contemporary art in Melle. You can also attend the local cinema and swimming pool. Activities with the locals will be organised, and a minibus will be provided for the group for excursions to the ocean, La Rochelle, Poitiers, and Niort.
