Volunteering at Action Education
Like us, you are convinced that everything starts with education and that it changes the world? Get involved in France, alongside the 200 volunteers who are working for access to quality education for everyone in the world!
Why get involved with Action Education in France?
Because, like us, you are convinced that education is at the heart of human development, the defence of fundamental rights and the emancipation of everyone, whatever their gender or age, and that it will enable tomorrow's citizens to build a peaceful and sustainable world, thanks in particular to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
Within our volunteer teams, nearly 200 ambassadors support our cause and act together to defend access to quality education for all, and more particularly for the vulnerable and marginalised populations that we support throughout the world.
Joining Action Education means being part of a human and collective experience, sharing and living solidarity by participating, with your team (at least three volunteers), in various missions.
No international volunteering
In its countries of operation - in Africa, Asia and Europe (excluding France) - Action Education relies exclusively on local skills and does not send expatriates, volunteers or international volunteers to the field.
Why do we do this? Because we consider a project and its impacts in their entirety and recruiting locally contributes to local human and economic development.
Our volunteer assignments in France
Regular or occasional, the missions proposed to our volunteers are always collective, varied and adapted to the motivations, tastes and availability of all.
Are you a pedagogue?
Do you like to pass on, exchange ideas and encourage debate? Raise awareness on our behalf! Within schools, socio-cultural structures or during events (film-debates, conferences, shows, etc.), raise awareness of the cause and issues of international education and solidarity.
Are you a communicator?
Are you comfortable in public and want to convince people of the importance of access to education? Represent us! Represent Action Education on stands, at public events etc. throughout France.
Are you more of a federator?
You like events and developing partnerships, you want to financially support the social mission of Action Education? Collect for us! Organise sports or cultural fundraising events such as concerts or solidarity races and raise funds to support our projects.
Are you - above all - a team player? Create, imagine, invent and share unique but collective moments!
Joining the team closest to you is very simple! Consult the directory of our teams and contact the team coordinator at the email address indicated. Attach a personal presentation to the email, as well as your availability and your expectations about volunteering.
If there is no team near you and you would like to start one, please contact us by email at [email protected] mentioning "Team creation - City" in the subject line. Attach to your email a personal presentation, a description of your team project, as well as your availability and your expectations about volunteering.

Getting involved in a different way
Volunteering at headquarters
Volunteering at Action Education's head office in Paris means supporting the salaried teams in their work. Volunteering at the head office cannot be a one-time commitment: it implies being available at least half a day a week and over several months.
Volunteering at the head office can involve all of the association's activities (organising events, carrying out administrative tasks etc.).
We are looking for motivated people who are willing to put their skills at the service of solidarity and the cause of education in the world.
Are you interested?
Simply fill in this form, we will register your request and contact you if we have any requirements for you.
If you are a student and you would like to carry out your tutored project with Action Education, please contact the coordinator of the team closest to you to propose your project.
If there is no team near you, you can send an email to [email protected] mentioning "Tutored project - City" in the subject line. Present us your field of study, your project, as well as the administrative aspects (partnership agreement, referent, investment time, number of people involved, defence, etc.) and the inherent planning.
