You will work on the international workcamps organized in our region. You will be trained to lead these projects. You will lead a camp and you will help with the preparation (logistic, local preparation…).

First, there will be a 6 days leaders training to prepare for leading international volunteers workcamp projects. Other leaders from all over the country will also participate to it. The training will take place in the region Auvergne, from the 24th to 30th of June.

During the month of July you will work with the staff at the office and you will visit other workcamps in the region during few days to meet other leaders and volunteers.

You will also prepare and organize your camp (relations with partners, tents, sleeping matresses, tools and all the stuff …).

Then during two weeks you will lead an international workcamp (from the 1st to 15th of August). You will supervise a group of 7 volunteers who are going to participate in the organization of a music festival :

This workcamp stands in the village of Blesle (700 habitants), located in the Haute-Loire Departement (Auvergne region). It is 70km southward from Clermont-Ferrand, in the very beautiful valley of Allagnon. Nature and architectual heritage make this place really attractive (it is certified as "Beautiful village of France").

During the workcamp, you will also have to organize the daily life and the leisures of the participants, and to manage the budget. The leader is responsible for the security of the volunteers, the respect of the rules and the french law, the atmosphere, the relations among the group and with local people and townhall. The leader is living with the group everyday, 24h/24h during the camps. Lodging are under tents or in common room (school, town hall, house …).

You will have 2 days off per month. You can take them during or outside the camps. We will choose them conjointly.
