Our commitments

Informing about volunteering

We develop the visibility of organisational life and provide a personalised welcome according to the needs of the organisations and the wishes of the volunteers so that the experience is both a source of personal fulfilment and of social utility.

Bringing the players together

We promote better cooperation between organisations for quality volunteering and raise awareness about civic engagement among public authorities, volunteering organisations and the general public.

Rewarding commitment

We recognise volunteering by awarding the Prix du Mérite du Bénévolat and the BÉNÉVOLAT quality label, and by promoting the visibility of local actors and their initiatives with a positive impact.

Volunteering has a price!
