179 – L’association « Auxilia » cherche des bénévoles agissant depuis chez eux, ou près de chez eux.

Agissant depuis plus de 50 ans dans les prisons, l’association Auxilia recherche des bénévoles pour aider les personnes détenues ou ex-détenues dans leur réinsertion sociale ou professionnelle par la formation et l’amitié.

Comment ? De trois façons au choix, et suivant les besoins.

Le besoin le plus important en nombre concerne les professeurs par correspondance. C’est donc un travail depuis chez soi. Il n’est pas indispensable d’avoir été enseignant. Il suffit d’avoir une bonne culture générale et l’envie de transmettre son savoir. Un responsable de groupe vous aidera dans votre tâche si vous le souhaitez.

La deuxième possibilité consiste à représenter Auxilia à l’intérieur de la prison auprès des personnes détenues comme de l’Administration Pénitentiaire. Dans ce cas, vous demanderez le statut de visiteur de prison. Nous vous y aiderons.

Enfin, dans quelques établissements, nous avons des professeurs qui exercent en présentiel. Eux aussi ont généralement le statut de visiteur de prison.

Travailler bénévolement à Auxilia éclaire la vie de personnes en difficulté et

les aides à se réinsérer.

Pour un premier contact :
