Other roles (Bénévoles)

Come and help at LPO! Our guests often enquire whether they can give back to LPO by volunteering in any way around the site. We’re delighted that Association Le Pas Opton (a French non-profit organisation) gives you the opportunity to apply to be a bénévole and do that very thing! Apply online now.

We’re looking for volunteers (bénévoles) to help out throughout the season (for set-up and pack-down, see Montage/Demontage). So long as you are over 18 and have at least a week to give, we're interested in welcoming you.

There are many roles that you could fulfil as a bénévole, for example:

  • bicycle repair and maintenance
  • catering for the team or for guests
  • night time security
  • audio and technical systems
  • minibus driver
  • grounds maintenance and gardens

If you have another idea, let us know what you have to offer.

You will get to LPO under your own steam - we can book ferries if you wish. You'll be allocated your own mobile home with bedding and towels supplied. In the morning we will enjoy a short time of worship and a thought for the day, followed by getting on with the job in hand. Then in the evenings barbecues will be available as you self-cater all your meals. A limited bar may be open depending on the time of year for us to enjoy spending time together. And of course, on Sunday we will enjoy coming together in the morning for a time of worship and celebration.

We usually ask you to work Monday to Saturday each week but there is no binding contract - as a bénévole, you're a volunteer member of our non-profit Association with no employment-type obligations. If finances are a challenge, let us know as we may be able to arrange sponsorship to cover your travel expenses.

Over the early May bank holiday weekend (3-6 May 2024) extra volunteers travel to LPO to join the animateur team and local staff for Le Grand Weekend. This combines animateur training and orientation with a host of pre-season preparations and a focus on prayer for the season ahead. We would love you to join us then.

To enable our on-site team to organise, prioritise and schedule we ask that all applications to join the volunteer team go via our online application system. Thank you!
