Emmaüs Centre Alsace


Activity description

Supported by ICE-RF, "Emmaus" from Scherwiller wants to host volunteers in its structure. This experience will give the opportunity to the volunteer to get engaged in a project, to contribute to his/her French level, give him/her autonomy and independence, a maturity in her/his personal and professional life. The Emmaus association adheres to the philosophy of the Emmaus movement, founded by Abbé Pierre in 1949: Acting for every man, every society, every nation can live, assert in the exchange and sharing. Hosting is one of the first tasks of Emmaus. It welcomed irrespective of nationality or religion, mostly people living in separation. It allows the homeless person to find a place to rest, sleep, wash, eat.Have a useful activity, work, acquire knowledge, can rebuild their lives and consider a new future. The companion of Emmaus can develop a real skill (carpentry, recycling clothing, kitchen, sale, recovery ...) with which he earns his living.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will live in an apartment in Scherwiller with a kitchen, a bathroom and with his own bed room. He can eat at the organisation but he will also get money. French language courses will be provided through the online linguistic support.

Training during the activity

The volunteer will take part at trainings organised by the National Agency. Before the beginning of his voluntary, he has to take part on a 2 weeks preparation, which included french courses, administrative tasks and many other interesting activities.
