1) Archeoparc Malagne
Archeoparc Malagne is a non-profit organisation set up to protect and valorise an archaeological site from Gallo-roman history. It reproduces a farm from this period of time and recreate the different techniques and know-hows used at that time.
The volunteers will mostly help out in the maintenance of the 7 hectares of the domain (planting vegetables, mowing, fixing fences…), take care of the animals living on site, help with the building of new places by using Gallo-roman techniques and follow the archaeological experiments done (one on a harvesting machine, the other one on the production process of barley beer “cervoise”). The tasks are mostly outdoors and manual. And the pictures are not lying: it is pretty remote!
2) Terrain d’Aventure du Péri (The Adventure Playground of Péri)
The adventure playground is open to all young people, from 5 to 26 years old but most children are below 15. It is a place dedicated to the self-development and the community life, a place where children can learn and experiment without pressure.
In this project, the volunteer will be all the time in contact with children and young people. S/he will launch, lead and follow several activities. These ones can be various and will depend of his/her ideas, wishes and skills. They will always suppose a democratic participation of the children who have the right to choose and make proposals. The adventure ground has an inside place but it is mostly a big outdoor area, be ready to work outside!

3) AMO Mic-Ados: combating failure in education
The AMO Mic-Ados is part of what is called, in Belgium, a non-constraint help to youth (AMO - Aide en Milieu Ouvert). It is a place where young people can ask for support regarding any difficulty they are meeting in their lives: at home, at school, about health, relationships, finances... The ESC volunteer will have as main mission to be involved in the project “«Sac Ados»”.
The aim of this project is to allow youngsters between 15 and 22 years old in school dropout situation, to have a reflection period about their future by taking part in manual works, creative activities and social actions which are useful to all our community (environment activities, building and painting activities, open space maintenance activities, activities for elder people, children or refugees, building music instruments for developing countries…).
