Start date: May 1, 2016,
End date: Jun 30, 2017
The project will take place in Lille from May 2016.5 volunteers coming from Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland and Russia will be hosted by REUSSIR La Mission Locale of Lille. They will participate in activities of promotion of the European Voluntary Service, Euro 2016, the week of Europe and 20th anniversary of EVS during the periode from May till October (from May to September for the German volunteer). In reference to their accommodation option, the volunteers will also take part in the intergeneration activities.The project is realised in cooperation with local partners: Métropole Européenne of Lille, City of Lille, Regional Association des Missions Locales, Histoires de Savoir(s), Itinéraires, Perspectives, Générations et Cultures, ...The Polish volunteer will continue her voluntary service til April 2017 working on activities of the EVS promotion in Mission Locale of Lille and for Missions Locales of the region connected to the Regional Association des Missions Locales.Volunteers' presence enriches and gives quality to the information provided for the young people and for the staff of Missions Locales. They are supposed to discuss their motivations with youth workers and young people but also their difficulties and the ways of dealing with them in reference to the EVS. The staff and young people will discover the countries of origin and the cultures of the volunteers during collective information meetings on districts. The preparation of young people before departure is also getting improved by presence and participation of the volunteers in different necessary collective and individual meetings. Volunteers will bring their vision and experience during the EVS. This contribution has a tendency to reassure young candidates for departure on frame and existent relations between a volunteer, his sending as well as hosting organisations and the National Agencies. Volunteers will also share their commitment by their participation in the project and make all the questions on notions of voluntary service and intercultural training clear for all young people .The project aims at reaching the young people the most unaware of advantages of international mobility, especially those living in the marginalised districts such as that of Faubourg de Béthune in Lille which will be the place to host the week of Europe in July.As our long term objective, we plan to raise importance to Missions Locale and youth organisations about the advantages of the mobility of young people with less opportunities and to help in development of the EVS projects.
