Project : Pays de la Loire Volunteer Team
Number of participants : 12
Countries : Germany, Croatia, Romania, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Russia
Dates : From June 18th to August 14th
This project will take place in two French regions : Brittany and Pays de La Loire. The base place will be Rennes, but the group will move to the villages of Marigné-Peuton and Saint-Paul-le- Gaultier during 3 weeks each. It will involve 14 volunteers aged between 17 and 30, and from
8 countries : Germany, Croatia, Romania, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Russia and France. The volunteers will arrive in Rennes on June 18th and leave on August 14th.
is a non-profit organization which develops environmental and heritage conservation projects. Since the 1960’s, we organize summer camps in Brittany to involve people from foreign countries and give them the opportunity to meet, to be useful, to discover our region, to help the preservation of our heritage and the peace between communities! Since the 80’s we develop social inclusion works, but we are still organizing volunteer camps!
As always, we think that to develop tolerance between people, the best way is to meet each other. With this project we intend to make young people from foreign countries to meet each other and to meet locals. This project will give the opportunity to young people to propose and develop their own ideas, it shall give them confidence. We use heritage as a medium because it allows to create bridges between cultures, and to develop the sense of community
and European citizenship.
Being a volunteer requiresthe appropriate profile, commitment, sense of responsibility, open minded and availability for the whole duration of the project. Willing to live a collective experience.
The volunteers will have to deal with a mixed group of different nationalities and create relationships with local communities.
A first experience in volunteering would be a plus as well as knowledge in the conservation of heritage. Interest for
Interest for French language and culture.
The volunteers will have two missions. The enhancement of Breton heritage and the development of relations with locals.
From June 22th to July 13th the team will be in Marigné-Peuton. With a technician they will repoint the joints of an old school in the middle of the village. From July 20th to August 10th, they will be in Saint-Paul-le-Gaultier and make picketing on the wall inside the old Church.
Every day, they will split the team to organize actions toward locals. It might be intercultural café, stand on the market, to shot a film… with different topics : the history of the built heritage, the promotion of the project, European mobility programs..
There will be also days to discover and enjoy the region!
An important part of these projects is the community life. The volunteers will spend a lot of time together, at work or during their free-time. Each day, two of them will have to prepare the food for everybody. They will have to make compromise, to discover new things and put aside some others.
During the work periods they might have to sleep in tents or in a common room. They will have to do physical work outside, share ideas and organize their free time together. They will discover local traditions and local weather! During the time spent in Rennes, they will have more free time
and an individual room: time to relax!
With the European Voluntary Service program, volunteers will get 6 euros per day for their individual expenses. We will provide them food or financial compensation, accommodation, and we will reimburse volunteers travels.

We will study carefully all application and selected candidates will be invite for Skype interview. The selection of volunteers will take place in the coming weeks.
To apply we still ask for a curriculum vitae, which gives a good idea about the candidate’s previous experiences. But it won’t be determining, we want to hear the reason of their application, to feel their motivation and their creativity! Rather than a letter of motivation or formal interview, we would like them to create a short movie where they talk about themselves the way they want.
They can be very creative, but it has to answer to some questions : Who are you ? Why are you interested in this project ? What do you think about camping, to live in community in a foreign country during two months and to do physical work, do you have previous experiences ? Do you have any ideas to meet local people? What are your hobbies?
For the selection of the volunteers we will need:
– Europass CV with picture (made in the last month) with skype name included
– Motivational letter, writing that your sending organisation will be “Building Bridges”. We ask all candidates to send a specific letter of motivation – why they want to volunteer with us rather than just a general EVS one. The volunteer is chosen according to his/her motivation and interest to the project and to the activities. It will be paid special attention to cover letters.
Remember to write in the motivation letter that your sending institution is “Asociación Building Bridges”.
