Detailed Information:
Workcamps provide an opportunity for individuals to combine their energies and together address problems vital to our shared global future. Whether working at a children's center in Paris, on an environmental project in Colorado, or a skills workshop in Sri Lanka, the volunteers' efforts contribute toward world peacemaking. SCI attempts to promote greater understanding and tolerance throughout the world through practical measures. We believe that people are capable of living together with mutual respect and without resorting to violent means to resolve conflicts. We support grassroots actions and organizations, through workcamps and longer term volunteering, leading to international solidarity, justice and peace. Workcamps are designed mostly for generalist volunteers. You do need to be aware of your physical limitations for certain types of projects. Sometimes there are language requirements. You are expected to participate with other volunteers in a group atmosphere; cooking together, planning activities together, working out differences together, etc.
