Taking part in a free training cooperative environment that is based on mutual help between peers.

Each member must volunteer their time to ensure the proper functioning of the cooperative. Everyone's involvement is necessary, whatever form it may take (cabaret fundraisers, routine maintenance, general assembly, spring cleaning, being on a member of a committee, helping an already formed committee, etc.)

You can contact the board of directors to approve your ideas or to know who to contact to volunteer:

Know that this is a dynamic environment that relies on the goodwill of each individual.

Know that all members may be asked to participate in fundraisers for the cooperative. 

Know that as a member of Caravane Coop, the Coop belongs to you, and you are therefore responsible for it.
