Resources for the members of the United Church of God

Youth Camp in French Speaking West Africa

We are seeking volunteers for this project which will start with a two-week training and language immersion period taking place in Bordeaux, France, followed by a week-long camp in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

This program will provide the church youth in the region with new classes designed to help them develop various practical life skills, bond and learn through strategic team building activities, and serve others through service projects, all the while incorporating the relevance of God, His way, and His plan for them. Potential courses include swimming, computer instruction, life skills (writing applications, interviewing and public speaking), as well as Compass Check/Christian living classes.

Participants will need to complete a French language placement test (the DALF) and place at an A2 level or higher in order to demonstrate sufficient French language skills to participate effectively in the program. Participants must be spiritually grounded, willing to work in difficult circumstances, and able to adapt in the face of hardship.
