Opération Solidarité Haiti 2014
Since the earthquake in January 2010 in Haiti, members of l’Association des Scouts du Canada (ASC) have been sending young scouters to Haiti to work on various development projects in collaboration with l’Association Nationale de Scouts d’Haiti (ANSH) and Scouts et Guides de France (SGdF). For a second year, Scouts Canada and L’ASC is participating in this initiative in hopes of strengthening a solid partnership between the organizations while engaging Scouting youth in an exciting adventure to help others around the world.
The committee for the “Solidarité Haiti” project is currently searching for at least 4-6 volunteers to form a Canadian contingent for a 1-month development project in summer 2014. Applications for this project can be individual, or with other members of your group- from both Scouts Canada and L'Association des Scouts du Canada. If we have several applications, we may create two project sites in Haiti.
- Tentative trip dates (depending on airfare) mid-July to mid-August 2014
- Departure will be to/from Montreal, Quebec
- Must be between 18-26 years old by April 1st, 2014 to participate

To apply, please send a letter of interest and your resume (CV) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your resume should include your age and contact information as well.
