|Located in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes, the association “Les Villages des Jeunes”, www.villagesjeunes.org, have been managing, running and renovating a hosting centre at Vaunières since 1964! It is an old mountain hamlet that has become both a “trampoline” for youth and adults facing hardships, and a welcoming place for French and international volunteers. Vaunières is a vacation destination for families, tourists and people with disabilities who come to enjoy the calmness of the mountain and the place’s dynamic atmosphere. Our workcamps, with volunteers from all countries, allow us to reinforce the cultural diversity of our work, and to open up the site to the world, making it a place where people from all ages and socio-cultural backgrounds agree to meet each other by working together and sharing the community life. We hope that you too will join us in an atmosphere of exchange and “do-it-together” that characterize our project.
Work : Located on the heights of the hamlet, five formerly inhabited cottages are today "abandoned". Your mission will be the interior restoration of these cottages. With the help of the technical supervisor, you will discover several types and methods of work: sanding, evacuation and recycling of rubble, interior decoration ..
Accomodation : You will be in tents for 2 or 3 people on the site of "l’Aurore" which is 300 meters from the center of the hamlet. You will have at your disposal: a kitchen in a cottage, a toilet block with water and toilets, and a beautiful outdoor space to eat together, around a fire. You will cook and make the menus together using local products. You will participate in the organization of the camp: kitchen, dishes, amenities, cleaning, and a campfire.
Leisures : You will participate in the village life which can be very active in the summer time, pizza nights, barbecues, dances, themed parties, international meals, sports games, etc. In addition, our hamlet is at the crossroads of several hiking trails and small rivers. Thus, walking, hiking and swimming will be part of the activity proposals. You can also participate in local events (festival, Provençal market) and visit the Buëch region. The leaders will help with the organisation of the leisure activities.
