Volunteers
An international work camp consists of volunteers from different races, nationalities and other backgrounds although local volunteers are usually in the majority; the latter are made up of two groups namely SAVWCA members and local community members.
We know that volunteering a portion of our time is something we should do. There are reminders all around us that our help is needed. Other people will significantly benefit from any time we contribute. You will get more out of your volunteer experience than you put into it. Volunteering is an act of mutual exchangebetween individuals or groups who offer their time, work, and energy in order to support both a project of public utility, and a hosting community which offer to volunteers a teacher and testing ground. Today, the voluntary approach which enable intercultural exchange, intergenerational deregulation and active solidarity, is the core of our action.

On an international work camp people coming from all backgroundsmeet each over. This project will gather 8 to 15 people from different nationalities. All volunteers will have to organize their daily life according to local possibilities and goals to achieve. The work is accessible to all and it doesn’t require particular skills. For all its duration, the voluntary approach is the basis of the project success. Time spent at work is about 30 hours per week. On work camp we encourage exchange, meeting, and implementation of concrete action which are useful for local projects.
