Start date: 01 Aug 2016,
End date: 30 Sep 2017
The project "EVS in 64" is a long-term EVS hosting project for two European volunteers, one living in Italy and the other one in Romania, for a length of 10 and 12 months. They will be hosted in two hosting organisations that are partners of Pistes-Solidaires and located in the two main cities of the Department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64):- In the Cultural Service of the "Student House" located on the campus of the University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour in Bayonne;- In the MJC Rive Gauche, an organisation implementing sociocultural activities, located in Gelos, in the suburbs of Pau. The partnership gathers two hosting organisations experienced in this field and ensuring qualitative hosting conditions, since they have already hosted European volunteers. Pistes-Solidaires is the coordinating organisation of this project and will pay attention on the way both the hosting organised and the volunteers will be supported during the project.Thanks to the project activities, the volunteers will have the possibility to get new skills, some technical in the field of communication, animation and environmental education. We want that the participation of the volunteers in this project gives them the opportunity to fortify their profesionnal project and to reinforce their employability.Participation, creativity and entrepreneurship are some of the key words of this project, since the volunteers will have the opportunity to join existing activities of the hosting organisations, but they will also have the possibility to take initiatives and propose their own activities. The partnership aims at developing a cooperative approch of the entrepreneurship spirit with the youngsters (doing with them and not against them). Thanks to the sharing of tutoring methods and tools started especially by Pistes-Solidaires as a coordinating organisation, the project aims at developing common practices within the partnership in the different countries, with a perspective of multiplying (tutoring, work on the youth development, mentoring...). The main objectives of the "EVS in 64" project are:- Keep up the development of a European dynamic at local level in the field of EVS by hosting European volunteers in the whole Department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64), in both parts that are really distinct: Béarn and Pays-Basque. It aims at arousing curiosity and interest regarding Europe among the citizens in the region and to promote European mobility among youngsters.- Integrate a cross-sector approach in European projects thanks to the Erasmus+ program (between non-formal and formal education in this case).- Highlight the commitment of young volunteers and give them opportunities to develop their skills within the frame of the proposed activities.The project "EVS in 64" gathers an experienced consortium in the fields of European projects and learning mobility and ensures the participation of a youngsters with fewer opportunities. It will give a great importance to the work around the skills acquisition and their enhancement to support the youngsters in making this volunteering experience a real asset for their future.
