TAKE PART OF A MEANINGFUL PROJECT

Sharing daily life with people with learning disabilities is a challenge. However, the relationship forged with them is full of meaning: an adventure worth it!

LEARN FROM ONESELF AND OTHERS

L'Arche communities are based on relationships of mutual support and friendship between people of different social, religious and cultural backgrounds.

GET PROFESSIONAL AND HUMAN SKILLS

Committing to being a volunteer (for 6 to 24 months) offers you time to reflect and build your choices of life. Time to search for "what is important for you"?

A rich training program useful for your whole life (first aid, nonviolent communication, how to “care for”, different kinds of disabilities...).


A personal mentoring to help step back and put words on your experience.


350 young volunteers from different countries each year.


3 days of regional sessions, to share and learn with other volunteers.


Propositions of spiritual events with the community and/or the Federation.



A discovery week before commitment.

•  Take a break in your life routine to be able to give something to yourself and live something new and different.

• Let yourself be transformed by the true and unmasked encounter with people with learning disabilitie.

Enter a new culture and a strong international dynamic, to learn french.

 Immerse yourself in an extraordinary lifestyle and integral ecology : participative management, involvement in sustainable development, multicultural dimension.




• Discover yourself beyond your personal background, your education, diplomas, skills, your successes and failures.

Laugh, cry and pray together, to celebrate and learn to reconcile, to go through difficult moments without being alone, to take responsibilities.

Build strong relationships with young people from all five continents.

A unifying experience that offers life in community, leadership of service, spiritual deepening and outreach.
