No, we will not change our shoulder commitment. International volunteering is and remains our core business (a non-profit core-business). What will make you move, engage you, jostle you … it will be a project of international solidarity, short or long, now or during your holidays, but from a perspective of eliminating prejudices, and to join a new vision of the World. Expect an extraordinary “before-after”.

Our second objective is to encourage learning of intercultural relations and the active participation of young people as citizens of the world through community projects of international volunteering. We seek to sensitize volunteers to the multiple issues related to the process of globalization, to the importance of solidarity action and the associative world for the development of local communities, by encouraging citizen attitudes, responsible, active, critical and supportive. We seek to have volunteers ask questions such as “What do we have to learn from each other, from his person, his culture, his association, his country? What do I really know about my own culture? What would I think if these countries judged mine with the same vocabulary, we use to talk about them? “.

Volunteering is one of the motors of the associative world, a pillar of democracy promoting social diversity, community life and human development here and there. For all these reasons, we consider that everyone should have access to it, regardless of their financial situation for example. Access for all voluntary projects is equivalent, according to our principles, to access for all to a strong democratic and cultural tool.them? “.

For us, going on a voluntary is not an objective in itself but a path to a more personal and longer commitment, the entrance to the path and the commitment of a lifetime. Volunteering is opening up to the realities of the world and participating in its way to the achievement of more just and equitable relationships.

Learning the management of the association and the international work camps. It is acting concretely to acquire an external view on other culture, to develop a sense of the observation and the adaptation to analyze situations, to structure the thinking, to develop critical sense and expression, to share knowledge and experience.

Volunteering is therefore taking possession of tools that will make it possible to commit to longer-term citizen initiatives and human adventures with or without an association.

Our ambition is to help volunteers to become responsible and supportive citizens of the world. It is not only a matter of getting involved in volunteering projects abroad, but also of contributing in a sustainable way to the development of society, of promoting solidarity and mutual aid here and there.

We strive to develop a vision of volunteering as a non-commercial activity, self-managed, based on altruism, attentive to respect for the other and finally, fair and solidarity with the associative world of the South. We oppose any form of recovery by the commercial sector of voluntary work for profit.

For this reason, we invite all members to engage little by little in the management of the association: this constitutes an additional step in the practical learning of an active citizenship.
