Young People Serving the Sessions (J2S)

J2S - Jeunes au service des sessions © Communauté de l'Emmanuel 2013

“Young People Serving the Sessions” (“Jeunes au Service des Sessions” – “J2S”) is an activity proposed to those between the ages of 18 and 25, from the beginning of June until the end of August each year, offering them a period of intense spiritual and personal experience.

For those who are following a course of studies, it is possible to combine the “J2S” service with an agreed unpaid work placement of 4 to 8 weeks (type: managerial or technical), if their educational establishment accepts the agreement.

The variety of services provided by the “J2S” makes it possible for everyone to do work that suits their skills and preferences: stores, sales, catering, reception, secretariat, or multimedia services. Certain services call for specific expertise, for example management, accountancy, or photographic and video production.

Join the “J2S“ for two weeks or more and give real meaning to your holidays!

  • Serving Others and Giving Oneself:

The “J2S” contribute to the smooth running of the Emmanuel Community’s International Sessions by sharing their time, energy and skills in a service which is voluntary but which is like a genuine professional experience.

  • International Communal Living:

The “J2S” find themselves surrounded by a variety of languages and cultures from all 5 continents. Celebrations, sporting and cultural activities, and sharing in the daily tasks are all opportunities to get to know one another and to develop real friendships.

  • Spiritual Life:

The “J2S” gather each day for praise and Mass. Each week they are offered several teachings. Throughout the summer, a team of Community members offers support to the “J2S”.

Accommodation is in the premises of the School of Evangelisation in Paray le Monial and meals are taken either in the Hôtel du Prieuré or in the cafeteria at the Sessions. You do not have to pay anything!


  • So, are you interested? You may send an email to the person in charge of the “J2S”, or telephone: 00 33 (0)6 80 91 65 25. He will contact you and ask you for your CV and a letter explaining your interest, in order to proceed with the recruitment process.
