The web documentary “Diary of a camp leader” presented at the Alliance Technical Meeting to 50 voluntary service organizations from 29 countries
20 youth leaders came through the XCHANGE project to practice their skills of leading international groups of volunteers in volunteer workcamps in small communities across 9 involved countries.
Workcamp leaders are volunteers able to trigger a process of intercultural learning through a meaningful project of public interest in a local community, and thus durably change the vision on the world of those who pass through the workcamps they coordinate.
The web documentary “Diary of a camp leader” is dedicated to them.
We expect it to be a turning point to 3000 workcamp leaders that will be placed in 2018 to lead workcamps worldwide and further more to 18.000 international volunteers involved in the movement yearly, placed in 1500+ workcamps worldwide.

At the Technical Meeting (Brno, Czech Republic, 1-6 March 2018) it was presented to even wider community of 90 International Voluntary Service organisations from approx. 50 countries, all having workcamps as a common tool.
