Volunteering and what it means
The more we give, the happier we feel. Volunteering increases self-confidence. You are doing good for others and the community, which provides a natural sense of accomplishment. Your role as a volunteer can also give you a sense of pride and identity.
Benefits of work camp:
• Live, play, and work in the great outdoors.
• Go on active adventures.
• Experience other parts of the country.
• Make new friends from all over — even from other countries.
• Learn leadership skills.
Camp jobs offer invaluable skill-building, leadership, training, and enrichment opportunities that can’t be found anywhere else! Regardless of your college major, camp experiences allow you to learn and develop skills that will enhance your job marketability. The benefits go far beyond a paycheck, too.

The aim of the project that was initiated by Pierre Cérésole was to reconstruct the war damaged village Esnes-en-Argonne and to be a symbol of reconciliation between France and Germany.
