Let's rebuild a French Fortress [ESC]
Description: The association “Les Amis du Fort de Jouy” is working on the renovation of the military fort at Jouy-sous-les-Côtes. The fort is located in the East of France, not far from Nancy, Verdun and Metz, and its objective was to protect France against possible German attacks in the 19th centuries. Since 2002, the association has been working on its development: visits are organized for tourists and it is also often used for cultural and artistic events.
Type of Work: The tasks will be very different from day to day: you may be asked to renovate walls, paint doors, create mortar and replace stones in a wall. But you could also show the fortress to tourists. We are therefore counting on you to take turns and ensure that everyone has fun! Activities, workshops and visits are organized in the evening and on weekends.
Accommodation: You will literally live inside the fort, in the former military barracks. We will prepare the camp beds, so you must bring your sleeping bag, a towel and a toiletry bag.
Requirements: Volunteers who are okay with rudimentary accomodation. To work, it is best to bring sturdy shoes and clothes. You will also need work gloves.
Approximate Location: The location of the workcamp is : Jouy-sous-les-Côtes in East of France
Notes: This is an European Solidarity Corps workcamp. So transportation costs will be reimbursed. Selected candidates will have to register on the European Commision's Youth Portal to confirm their participation.
