Working with people facing difficult situation can confront you withyour own experience and difficulties. For the volunteer's well-being it is important that she feels herselfgreat, otherwise the others' difficulties will make him feel even worst. It is important that the volunteer is open-minded : Dealing with parental lack of support is notalways easy to accept for the volunteer but it is really important not to makeany judgment if we want to really help the families. As the children's situation can be really hard (AIDS, drugs, alcohol) itis important that the volunteer feels strong enough to face those situations.An experience with children or a pedagogical background is likeable.


Description of the project:

Les Cerfs-Volantsoffers residential stays (7/7, 24h/day) for 25 children from 0 to 3 yearsold. La Pouponnière take the childrenin its care when family support is not possible and a hand is needed. Most of the time, it is temporarily. Allalong the stay, and when it is possible, we collaborate with the family toreintegrate the child. Or we search for a hosting structure for the children.

When the child reintegrates his family, we help also for the 1st stepsin living together.

It is important to note that ""Les Cerfs-Volants""is a support for the families but NOT a substitute.

Task of the volunteer:

The main tasks ofthe volunteer will be related to the children care. Children are divided in 3 groups ofactivities. These are defined accordingto the skills of the children. Eachgroup has his own room (sleeping room, eating room, laying room, bathingroom). Each group is managed by 3nurses.

The volunteer can be integrated in the group she feels the mostcomfortable with. This can be decidedafter a period of adaptation.

Possible contact languages: French


The volunteer willlive in the project. At the last levelof the house, there is a small apartment with 2 sleeping rooms. One will be for the volunteer and it ispossible that another person will live in the other room.

There is one shared kitchen and bathroom.

As the apartment is located in the same building were the children live,there are some rules the volunteer will have to respect (at any time, even theweek-ends) :

- no smoking in the building

- avoid inviting people at home

- being very quiet at night when going upstairs in the apartment.

- Not making to much noise in the lodgement

- No pets

This is very important to respect because it is directly related to thewell-being of the children. They need torest and to sleep in a quiet atmosphere.

Also, because we care for the children, we think it is not good for themto have people from the outside coming around at any time of day/night.

Moreover, these conditions are legal requirements.

Work schedule: The work scheduleis from 8 to 4pm. Thevolunteer is not supposed to work during the week-end.
