Initiative et Developpement Citoyen is a non-profite company base in a small village in the south of France. Its main activities include an ecologic campsite, open to tourists from June to September, environmental education activities, organic gardening, international youth mobility activities such as youth exchanges and European Voluntary Service, workcamps, green building, events for local community and much more. It is lying in a very rural area with little connections to closest city (Carcassonne), 18km away from the campsite.

There are four different profiles a Polish volunteer can choose from: 
1. International mobility; 
2. Eco tourism 
3. General management
1. The first profile includes organising youth exchanges, promoting EVS and youth exchanges, feeding blog and website with opportunities, contents, help organising dissemination or promotional activities to spread out information amongst youth, logistic preparation and organization for the events etc.
2. The second profile includes helping delivering useful information to tourists, helping with daily tasks at the camping (maintenance, cleaning, reception, etc.), organising events for local community, updating blog and website, etc.
