Before your departure for the mission, we want to prepare yourself by participating in spiritual training and team building training.
JET week brings together the JET promotion of the year.
The themes of self-knowledge, interculturality, ecology, inequalities in the world are addressed and give volunteers the tools necessary to tackle their mission.
It is also an opportunity to discuss with the JETs returning from the countries.
Before going on the mission, JET gives volunteers the opportunity to train themselves to be true “disciples” and actors of development, by living a formation in spiritual life, community life, missionary life. This is one of the riches of the JET project: a privileged moment where everyone can listen to God and prepare themself to “love and serve” those to whom they will be sent during them mission.
The challenge is to get to know ourself better and deeply to be able to give better.
It is possible to experience this time of formation at Hautecombe Abbey in France (“Hautecombe Discipleship School”) or in the Carthusian Monastery of Zaragoza in Spain.
