Each young person is sent on mission by the Chemin Neuf Community who give the volunteer a specific project to undertake.
Missions can be very varied according to the needs of the country, the qualifications of the young person and the needs on the ground: be they medical, social, agricultural, educational, literacy-based, welcoming of pilgrims, construction workshops, pastoral, management…
“The secret to the success of an entire project is the constant referring back to Jesus. This requires prolonged times of prayer and an attentive and constant listening to the Word of God.”
Each day, the volunteer enters into personal, community and liturgical prayer which gives him/her the strength to serve and give of him/herself! Regular spiritual accompaniment is offered on the ground during the whole of the volunteer’s mission.
Life in fellowship and community is at the heart of the JET movement – it sustains our whole mission.
Each young person on JET will live in a Chemin Neuf Community house and will share in the main parts of the daily life there. The young person on JET will have the chance to live with brothers and sisters of the Community who may come from a variety of different countries and nationalities, given that the Community is international in membership.
