ICV Around the World



ICVolontaires-France is a French-based non-governmental organization. Its aim is the recruitment, training and coordination of volunteers for non-profit projects (conference support, cybervolunteerism and language services).

ICVolontaires-France is one of ICVolunteers' European antennas, a worldwide network of volunteers specialized in the field of communications and working with volunteers from some 100 countries.

Founded in 2005, ICVolontaires-France has the aim and mission to manage ICVolunteers European projects.

Based in Ferney-Voltaire, ICVolontaires-France works in close collaboration with ICV-Switzerland and the Federation of ICVolunteers, thus benefiting from its experience and international network.

Our Activities

As a French Association, ICVolontaires-France cultivates a European vision. Our activities are in agreement with the philosophy and ethics of ICVolunteers, but aim to focus on priorities of its working environment, such as, for example, training programs through volunteerism, responding to very specific and tangible needs. In addition to the organization of international conferences, ICVolunteers-France facilitates for example the participation of volunteers through different exchange programs, in particular in the context of the European Youth Program. ICVolontaires-France also participates in ICV's "language and migration" project. Learn more about our projects...
