Job Description

An exciting opportunity to join a friendly team and make an real impact! 

Project Play is looking for dedicated and enthusiastic team members to help shape their growing charity. The charity is based in Northern France and provides varied education and play sessions, 6 days a week, to some of the 250+ displaced children living in dire conditions there. For many of the children, this is the only service that they access and a vital opportunity for them to be in a safe space in which they can relax, play, escape, learn and explore. Our objective is to support our students development, provide psycho-social care and help mitigate the effects of trauma through play and learning - all whilst having fun! 

Founded in 2018, Project Play is a growing charity that has already seen the positive effects of its service. It is an exciting time to be joining the friendly and hard-working team as we continue to consolidate, improve  and grow our service. Because we are a small team there are many opportunities to develop your own teamwork, problem solving and leadership skills whilst gaining experience of working with children/ humanitarian aid. 

Successful applicants will work with our wonderful close-knit volunteer team. We spend the mornings planning sessions and resourcing. In the afternoons, we head out in the field to conduct sessions which include education, play, sports and craft. We then head home to our shared accommodation. We are lucky enough to work alongside some other organisations in Calais and are part of a fantastic community of volunteers.

The role is voluntary but the charity supports volunteers with accomodation, traval and some food.
