Kanada

Vermittlungsgebühr 150 EUR


Seit 1996 haben wir Workcamps unserer Partnerorganisation Chantiers Jeunesse (CJ) im französischsprachigen Quebec im Programm. Die Workcamps von CJ sind zweisprachig Englisch und Französisch, wobei Englisch überwiegt.


Besonderheiten:
  • Jeden Nachmittag vor Campbeginn (16-19 Uhr) treffen sich die Teilnehmer der CJ Camps in einer Bar in Montréal zum gegenseitigen Kennenlernen! Es lohnt sich also einen Tag früher anzureisen!
  • Für den Workcamp-Aufenthalt in Quebec wird grundsätzlich eine zeitlich beschränkte Arbeitserlaubnis (temporary work permit) benötigt, die in Deutschland beantragt werden muss. (Einzige Ausnahme: Freiwillige die schon eine "study permit" für Kanada haben) Bis zur Austellung können bis zu 8 Wochen  vergehen. Deshalb frühzeitig anmelden!!!
  • Seit 2016 können Freiwillige eine Arbeitserlaubnis für gemeinnützige Arbeit (work permit for charitable work) beantragen, die von Kosten befreit ist!

PROJECT: Over 23 years ago, the city of Sainte-Thérèse and Chantiers jeunesse volunteers began transforming an abandoned site into a new green space located right in the town center, some 30 km north of Montréal. The site, known as the “Pit à Charron” (the Charron’s Pit) is a former quarry and was for many years a garbage dump! The groups toiled away to clean the site and begin a landscaping job. Today, we are a long way from the first two phases when 800 tires were found and the first paths and trails were built! This site is now a nature park well known by the whole
community. Participants have helped with the installation of windmills used to filter the water of the ponds. Welcome to the “Jardin des Sources” (Springs Garden)!
Partner: The city of Sainte-Thérèse has been involved in the development of its youth and the revitalisation of it environment with Chantiers jeunesse for 24 years. Volunteers will work in team with Sainte-Thérèse youth center’s teens.
WORK: Two groups will follow one another this summer in July and in August to improve the accessibility of the site for the citizens and to bring out the ecological and natural character of the site. Moreover, you will get the chance to work with youths from the Sainte-Thérèse Youth Club.
Here is the challenge that awaits you in this bird’s paradise:
