Chantiers jeunesse – Intercultural Volunteer Projects in Canada

Dear volunteers. As the situation regarding COVID-19 continues to develop, Chantiers jeunesse is putting specific measures into place within our organization. Please read the following important information:

Cancelation of all Leadership In Your Own Hands training sessions

  • The situation regarding COVID-19 has forced us to cancel all in-person training weekends, scheduled in April and May.
  • As an alternative, we will provide an online training that will be accessible on our website.

Volunteer projects in Canada for summer 2020

We are still working hard to maintain our volunteer projects for this summer. We want to allow our volunteers to get involved and have a positive impact in the communities, but also provide them with a safe environment.

With the changes brought on by the current situation, we are taking the time to do a risk analysis for each of our projects, in order to put your security at the forefront and to put in place adequate social distancing measures.

The list of projects taking place this summer, as well as the measures we will be putting in place will be shared in the second half of June.
