Chantiers jeunesse – Volunteer Projects Abroad


In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, Chantiers jeunesse has taken specific measures to ensure the safety of our volunteers.

Chantiers Jeunesse will not send any Canadian volunteers to international work sites until August 31, 2020.

The current situation no longer allows us to send volunteers abroad. We invite you to get involved with local initiatives in the coming months or with a volunteer project in Canada. If you’d like to participate in an international community project, you can already begin planning your experience and register for fall or winter programs.

For volunteers who have already registered, Chantiers jeunesse will refund the $50 registration fee, which is otherwise valid until December 31, 2021. You will receive an email confirming the refund upon request.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about how you can get involved in your communities, and when our international programs will re-open.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at
