Assistant éducatif et accompagnateur intergénérationel
Start date: Aug 15, 2015, End date: Oct 14, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

“La Ferme des Enfants” is an associative structure that depends on the french law of 1901 (association à but non lucratif) . Its statutes and its purposes are in favor of ecology , child respect and intergenerational relationships development. Many multicultural exchanges were organized in the past, both for school and for the ecological project created to build the “Hameau des Buis”. The location is a crossroads of experiments and encounters beyond the borders of the nation, and involves multiculturalism and openness to the world. Hosting EVS gets place naturally into this framework for mutual enrichment , and optimization of the international dynamics , with educational, cultural , communication , interpersonal benefits and citizens issues. The EVS will become inhabitants of the place for 11 months. Their main mission is intergenerational entertainment and educational assistant : contact with children and the elderly, running the network , creating opportunities for meetings around the game , the garden, the farm, artistic, sharing knowledge or experiences of solidarity and civic actions life ... For these reasons , the three volunteers must be: autonomous, capable of initiative, curious, they will have affinities with children and the elderly. During the month of May will be established trilateral agreements between the structures and volunteers. The sending agencies will be responsible for the preparation of volunteers. Regular meetings will be held between the mentor and the volunteers and their sending organizations will be notified. At their arrival in the Hameau des Buis in August , the three young volunteers will be supported in their french learning. They will also be prepared by a training on alternative pedagogies. The rest of August will be dedicated to the meeting with the residents of the hamlet, and the preparation of school with the teaching staff and the training of early period of the French AN. “La Ferme des Enfants” will take care of housing, transport and food to volunteers during their eleven months stay. Proposed activities for volunteers include: to help teachers in their daily work supporting children with kindness , to help people in retirement who need to create intergenerational ties , to facilitate non-formal education workshops (the topics will be determined by the volunteer ) , to participate in the daily life of the eco-village of Hameau des Buis, to get involved in the research project in permaculture . The expected results are mainly human : to support the EVS in their becoming active citizens by the acquisition of participatory skills; to join together younger and older; to promote intercultural listening in school. In the long term , the presence of EVS adds a new axis to the intercultural dimension of “La Ferme des Enfants”.
