WORKCAMP PRE- PROGRAMME 2006
Workcamps
The international workcamp is a very important part in the action undertaken by Solidarités
Jeunesses. It is prepared long time in advance in the different regional offices and the National
Secretariat.
The international workcamp is seen as a tool of local and personal development, tolerance and
understanding between the different participants. An important part of our workcamps is the
inclusion of people coming from disadvantaged backgrounds and it aims also to make the local
population participate actively.
International
Solidarités Jeunesses is the French branch of Youth Action for Peace, a movement created after the

Projekt: The Center of Beaumotte is an association of public education whose aim is to enable the
people to assume responsability and to take volontarily part in the actions of development and
solidarity. It develops several actions in the framework of local development and international
exchange.
The association Center of Beaumotte owns some old sandpits at a riverside. During many years this
site has been left abandoned. At present, some important work is necessary to preserve this place
and especially the islands in the river. This year, the volonteers will continue the work on the
cultivation and will stabilize the borders of one isle using the technics of fascine.
Ths association is a collective hosting center, hosting the whole year round people with problems in
their social and professional integration in society. The project gives different people the possibility
to live in this center during 6 months or one year to enable them later to launch their personal
project. The hosted people are between 15 and 40 years old. As this project is based on mixing the
target groups, each summer the association wants to allow adolescents (aged between 15 and 18) to
gain the experience of an international workcamp.
The spare time activities and excursions to discover the region will be planned together with the
leading group, the members of the association and the volonteers.
