At the international secretariat

We’re looking for volunteers at our international secretariat and head office in Montreuil, France:

  • To meet Emmaus representatives arriving from abroad at Paris airports and train stations and take them by public transport or taxi to the international secretariat or hotel
  • To accompany Emmaus International delegates on visits to Emmaus communities in the Paris region and on sightseeing trips to Paris. It would be useful if you had at least a basic level of English and/or Spanish
  • To assist occasionally with event preparations: the Paris salon (a huge jumble sale), events, international and other meetings
  • To help with mailings and franking
  • To help with the visa application process for Emmaus International representatives (submitting and picking up the application from consulates etc.)
  • To provide administrative support (filing, data input, telephone reminders etc.)

Other specific tasks may also be offered, depending on your skills and our needs.

> > These unpaid assignments are aimed at people who already live in France.


With a member organisation


Volunteers help out at Emmaus member organisations too – in France they’re known as “friends”.

Their role depends on their skills and interests and, of course, on what the organisation needs. Volunteers are involved in a great many of their activities, for example collecting and sorting through clothing, support with literacy or leading workshops and leisure activities – while sharing their know-how and cheerfulness at the same time! Volunteers contribute towards helping socially-excluded people reconnect with society. It’s true they do give a lot, but they also get a lot back. The person receiving most help isn’t always who you think it is!

There are several thousand volunteers committed to helping Emmaus groups in many parts of the world.
