Looking for volunteers

The Fondation Autisme Luxembourg (FAL) is looking for volunteers to accompany people with autism during their stay and to guarantee an unforgettable stay with various activities for people with autism. As a volunteer, you are very valuable for the life of the Foundation. There are still places available to accompany young people aged 13 to 17 during the Pentecost and summer vacations.

What is the role of the volunteer?
We need people to accompany children, teenagers or adults with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to stays and camps. The support is personalized because the supervision is 1:1; a supervisor supervises one person with autism. If you want to live an unforgettable experience, join our team of motivated and dynamic volunteers!

What are the requirements to be a candidate?
We are looking for people who are at least 18 years old and who speak either Luxembourgish, French, German or English. The accompanying persons are invited to participate in an introduction to autism shortly before their departure for the vacation week. Applicants should be motivated, open-minded and respectful towards people with disabilities.

When are we looking for volunteers?
FAL's Leisure Department organizes about 20 vacation camps per year in Luxembourg and abroad. Most of them take place during the school vacations. All dates can be found on our website www.fal.lu/evenements/colonies/.

Is there any compensation?
The Fondation Autisme Luxembourg covers the costs of transportation, accommodation, meals and activities. The volunteers who accompany the participants receive an allowance of 25 €/day.

A unique service?
People with ASD who come to us cannot benefit from similar services anywhere else in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Therefore, it is essential that the Autism Foundation Luxembourg can continue to offer and develop these services. To do so, we continuously rely on the exceptional support and dedication of our volunteers.

Who can I contact if I am interested?
By e-mail to the FAL's Leisure Department: loisirs@fal.lu, by phone (+352) 26 91 11-1, or via our website www.fal.lu/formulaire-benevole/.
