Notice to young people who love sport: This year, Joeuf has decided to wear the colors of the Olympic Games! Because Joeuf is a city that loves sport! This is where Michel Platini comes from, one of the players who marked the history of international football. The city also has numerous sports facilities, in which professional basketball players and boxers train in particular. The city of Joeuf has been welcoming international volunteers every summer for many years. The philosophy of the project is to create a link between the inhabitants of Joeuf and young people from all over the world. By choosing this project, you will therefore have the chance to meet other international volunteers, with whom you will be accommodated, but also young inhabitants of Joeuf, who will join you during the day for the works and the exits.

Work: On the occasion of the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024, the city offers to participate in a 100% sport project! In the mornings, you will participate in the work which is simple: build several symbols of the Olympic Games (the 5 rings) in wood and paint them to decorate the city. With the remaining wood, it will also be necessary to create giant letters and numbers, to install a "Joeuf 2024" on the heights of the city. A great opportunity to learn the basics of woodworking and have fun painting! In the afternoons, you can participate in activities around sport: Olympics, the discovery of disabled sports or E-sports, meeting high-level athletes, hikes and sports games, etc. ...

Accomodation and food: To stay within the theme, you will be accommodated, with the other international volunteers, inside a sports hall. You will sleep in the dojo (the judo room) with super comfortable mattresses! Don t forget to take a sleeping bag with you. Toilets, showers and a large room with a kitchen are just next door. You will also have access to the gymnasium to play football or basketball, to a ping-pong room and to a room with a video projector for movie nights! All aspects of collective life (shopping, meal preparation, cleaning) will be managed between you volunteers, on the basis of a functioning that you will have decided in a common way (ex: use of planning, constitution of pairs,... ). You will be helped in this task by a community life facilitator. The goal: for each volunteer to be an actor in their stay with respect for others and community life.
