SWEEP THE CITY. S.E.R.V.E. Paris Day, Every Saturday

STCP “SWEEP THE CITY” Volunteer Activity.

For this event, please remember to register at this link HERE

WHY:  We all know how areas of Paris need our help with trash pickup. Cleaning Paris is one way to impact the environment in a positive manner.

East Saturday, groups of 5-15 volunteers will go out to a location, either Paris Gares (Gare Austerlitz, Gare de Lyon, or Gare St. Lazare), or at major metro stations such as Place Republique, Place St. Michel, Bastille, or Place Nation.

STCP will provide the brooms, gloves, garbage bags and hand sanitizer (volunteers are required to bring a mask).

WHO: Our community of international volunteers who join us each Saturday for S.E.R.V.E Paris Day.

WHERE:   Volunteers meet every Saturday for activities starting at 10am to 2pm, at Albert Schweitzer Parc, 10 rue de L’Hotel de Ville, (Line 7 Metro Pont Marie, or Line 1 Metro St. Paul)

WHAT:   At 10am, you have the option of going out with a group of volunteers to ‘Sweep The City’, or you can join our Saturday Food distribution or Bike Brigade. At 12pm we have 2 activities, our Language Exchange and our Paris Welcome Clinic designed for refugees and new volunteers to Paris. At 1pm our integration picnic starts, along with games in the park, including badminton, ping-pong, Yoga, Molki, and Petanque.

Alternatively, we ask that you consider becoming a SAVE member to work directly with our refugee community. The SAVE Member program offers training and a combination of theory and practice workshops to ensure more impactful and meaningful volunteer experiences for our volunteers.

If you are interested in becoming a SAVE Member, there are many benefits. First, you can take an unlimited number of workshops, and participate in a wide variety of exclusive SAVE Member volunteer activities and events. SAVE members also receive a certificate of benevolence for school, work or job search requirements. SAVE members also collaborate with fellow SAVE members to social impact projects.
