Volunteers help wherever they can

20 December 2017

France has nearly 20 million volunteers doing their bit, working with animals, teaching French (or English) to asylum-seekers, keeping nature parks or taming bureaucracy.

One in three volunteers is a retired over-65 year old and most want to ‘be useful in society”. 

Paris mairie has a website of volunteering one-off ‘missions’ at jemengage.paris.fr which has a vast range of volunteer posts across the city.
