Session Description:

For this workshop (Tuesday, March 26),  we will talk about how to do the May 2024 FUN RUN Fund Raiser, …similar to last year’s successful FUN RUN in Parc Bois de boulogne, where we raised €2,000 for an orphanage (see below).  Join us to put together this year’s FUN RUN!


S.A.V.E. Capstone Project is all about engaging in a process of cultivating a unique insight, idea, or action that leads to positive social change.

Once you become a S.A.V.E. member you might find you have a personal desire to do more for our society and the city of Paris. Through a creative process and guided framework, the S.A.V.E. program offers a volunteer the ability to work on your own social impact idea, collaborate with other volunteers on ideas for social impact, or improve existing volunteer projects.

During this workshop, we will discuss how to design our own capstone project and how to transfer a concept in our head into a real-world event. We will host some of our former interns who completed successful capstone projects with STCP to share their experience with our current S.A.V.E. members.

What is the SAVE Program?

The S.A.V.E. (Service. Action. Volunteer. Empowerment) program is designed to help us all become better volunteers through both practice and theory. The program consists of monthly online and face-to-face workshops, volunteer activities and special initiatives in Paris, and events to promote collaboration with like-minded volunteers.

SAVE participants follow a methodology designed to help us find our purpose in volunteering, and how to collaborate and co-exist in a diverse city like Paris.

SAVE participants gain knowledge and insight about the people we serve, our environment, social challenges, and case studies of proven solutions that resulted in change or impact.  Volunteers collaborate and work together on social impact projects and ideas for our own neighbourhoods in Paris and beyond.

Hundreds of Serve the City Volunteers have become SAVE program participants and we encourage all our new volunteers to us and connect with others who want to connect with other volunteers, make change, and make impact

There is no fee to join the S.A.V.E. program, but there is a 10-euro monthly donation to volunteer with Serve the City Paris. These monthly donations are recorded as a tax-free deductible donation, and 100% of the donation goes towards the administration and support of all Serve the City humanitarian programs, activities, courses and expenses related to humanitarian needs.
