Volunteering is first and foremost a commitment to devote time during a period of one’s life to an initiative, within a charity or a non-profit organisation. Thanks to years of expertise in volunteering and international solidarity, and strong links with its partners, France Volontaires can help you find a responsible international volunteering mission that matches your motivations, profile and objectives.
