L'ENVOL is looking for various volunteers for its programs:

On our camps (4 to 7 days) :

Daily life volunteers

Daily life volunteers are with the children all day long and participate in all of the proposed activities and workshops. They offer support to the children and pay particular attention to each child individually as well as to the group as a whole. Expected qualities: empathy, common sense, enthusiasm, patience and creativity.

Activity volunteers

Activity volunteers set up activities for groups of 8 to 10 children. They lead or help during these activities, and even organise and lead events in the evening for the entire camp. They are always ready to dress up, sing, dance, play, install, and clean up the different rooms. Expected qualities: dynamism, imagination, open-mindedness, cheerfulness as well as seriousness and having a sense of responsibility.

Medical volunteers (physician, nurse or care assistants)

Medical volunteers are responsible for the care and treatment of children, under the responsibility of the coordinating nurse.
They belong to the organising team and thus actively participate in the activities and to camp life.


On our hospital workshops (half a day):

The volunteer will animate or co-animate a creative and recreational workshop during 2 hours in our partner hospitals. He will make sure that the children understand and follow the activities and focus on their successful performances. The volunteers are always accompanied by a member of the team as well as the hospital’s medical team. Expected qualities: empathy, dynamism, enthusiasm, cheerfulness and creativity.


On our recreational field trips (half a day):

During our recreational field trips, the volunteer will accompany the families and assure that the field trip is going well. He will also create a link between families and make them discover L’ENVOLs other programs. Expected qualities: organization, patience, listening and observation skills, and an appropriate speech. During our recreational field trips, the volunteer will be self-suffisant, therefore, an anterior volunteering experience on one of our camps is necessary to apply.

I am seeing courageous and lively children that sometimes do even more than children that face less difficulties. They are doing beautiful things and are full of joy and strength. It is a huge life lesson.


We are giving these children a bit of strength and recklessness that will hopefully help them during these difficult moments.


It’s great, because we all chose to be a part of this project to bring something to these children. We asked for it and we can definitely feel the impact. At L’ENVOL, everyone is strongly involved. It is touching to see such strong relationships being developed
