About the hosting organisation

Solidarités Jeunesses (SJ) is a popular or non formal education movement and association that places solidarity, voluntary commitment and political will at the core of its projects. Our choices and actions affirm our vision for a society where progress is above all social, where respect for human beings and their environment is a founding and shared value, where the freedom to choose, to dream and to resist are innate (born with) or accompanied. Our activities are aimed at everyone, regardless of age, nationality or social and cultural background. Since its very beginning, SJ participates concretely to building peace, by promoting intercultural encounters, in France and internationally. As a popular/non formal education association, SJ relies on participatory pedagogy that encourages initiative, values the commitments of each individual and combines the strengths and intelligence of its volunteers and employees. Solidarités Jeunesses, is a national secretariat based in Paris and in eight regional delegations, which welcomes French and foreign volunteers from time to time or throughout the year, but also young people in difficulty as part of solidarity actions and fight against exclusion. All our delegations are located on original sites (old factory, high altitude village, municipal campsite, village house, castle or farmhouse). These sites have all been renovated over the years by many volunteers, employees and permanent residents who live there, cross and succeed one another.


Volunteering is an exchange between a person who offers their time, energy, and vision for the benefit of a project of general interest. It is also an opportunity to learn, to experience interculturality and personal construction. Volunteering is first and foremost a personal commitment.

Why do we welcome international volunteers ?

• to allow an intercultural dimension and exchange within all our projects.
• to allow each person evolving within the association to be enriched by the contribution of international volunteers (open-mindedness, self- confidence, discovery of other cultures, learning one or several new languages)
• to stimulate local development by relying on the motivation and contributions of international volunteers in our work with local associations and inhabitants of the territory
