Become a volunteer

devenir-benevole-fondationlejeune

Volunteers of the headquarters form an integral part of the employee teams. Requirements relate more especially to administrative work: filling envelopes, preparing stands, updating address lists, making telephone calls, preparing transmissions etc

To be a volunteer, you have to find what you want to do and be happy doing it: in French the word for volunteer is bénévole, bene (good) vole (want): somebody who wants to do good and who therefore feels good. For the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation to work, we need regular and loyal volunteers and the ability to know that every task entrusted to them will be carried out.
