What we're about

BECOME A SERVE THE CITY PARIS VOLUNTEER

We would be excited for you to join our 3,000+ international volunteers who help those in need in Paris.

Our team of volunteers participate in volunteer activities offered 5 days a week, including interactive workshops and integration events. Any given week, our Volunteers help deliver food to refugees and the homeless, teach English and French to refugees, participate in sports activities with refugees, work at a Soup Kitchen for the homeless and other activities. We also have other programs such as P.A.I.R. (“Program to Aid & Integrate Refugees”)

If you haven't registered as a volunteer, please follow the following steps:

1) If you are new, please first fill out a volunteer registration form: https://www.servethecity.paris/become-a-volunteer/.

2) Then you will be prompted to pay the 20 Euro donation to participate in all our regular STCP volunteer activities. Once the 20 Euro donation is paid, a link to sign up for various activities will be provided. (You can view all our activities at https://www.servethecity.paris/programs/)

3) We also ask all our new volunteers to take at least one S.A.V.E. "Basic Volunteer Training Workshop" before volunteering. A list of dates for workshops is provided along with the volunteer activity signup sheet, once the volunteer registration form is completed.

Alternatively, you can join S.A.V.E. network! As a SAVE member, there is a 75 Euro membership fee and you have access to all weekly workshops every month, SAVE member-only volunteer activities (such as visiting refugee camps, teaching French or English to refugees, participating in our soup kitchen, our Welcome to France Clinic for refugees, and our Social Tours program).

What is S.A.V.E. Member Program?

The S.A.V.E. Member Program is designed to make us more impactful volunteers and to make our volunteer experiences more meaningful. SAVE offers a combination of theory (online workshops) and practice (volunteer activities) and projects where you are able to collaborate with other like-minded volunteers to become more empowered as a change-agent in today’s society.

Once you become a SAVE Member, you will work closely with other SAVE members and our leadership team on what we call social impact “Capstone Projects”. You will also have the opportunity to join any of our monthly SAVE workshops free-of-charge whenever you like. You will be invited to our exclusive SAVE member workshops, SAVE Member only volunteer activities and social initiatives.

Each SAVE member also receives a Certificate of Completion, and a personalized Letter of Testimonial for your CV, school credit, or work upon request.

STCP FOOD DISTRIBUTION (TUESDAY, FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS)

Volunteers distribute sandwiches, salads, coffee, tea and other items to people in need across Paris on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday mornings.

We meet at Albert Schweitzer Parc (10 rue de l'Hôtel de Ville. Paris 75004). Before distributing food, we socialize as an international community of volunteers. Then we pack the food in our bags and deliver food to the homeless and refugees around Paris. The whole activity takes 2-3 hours maximum. Please bring a mask. We supply rubber gloves if you need them.

Why not do a good thing with your morning and meet new people at the same time? Join our Meetup today!

FRENCH AND ENGLISH LANGUAGE CONVERSATION COURSES

Serve the City Paris volunteers offer basic level French and English 'training through conversation' courses for refugees.

During this conversation course, a minimum of 15 instructor volunteers (that's you!) are matched across the table with a minimum of 15 different refugees, to have a conversation in French or English. There will be name tags provided that you will fill out stating which language you can instruct (you can put both French and English). The refugees will also fill out name tags with the language they wish to learn. Every 10 minutes, everyone rotates one seat over to meet someone new and talk French or English. The session lasts 1 hour.

The session will be followed by a community meal from 20h-21h where our conversations can continue! We ask that the volunteers bring a food item such as bread, fruit, cookies or a salad to share with the refugees. *Please do not bring pork/ham as many of the refugees do not eat it.*

You don't have to be a trained language instructor. But we require each volunteer to take at least one of our online SAVE workshops.
