Start date: Aug 1, 2016,
End date: Nov 30, 2017
In this project, we will host to European Voluntary Service, in the local public body, the “Communauté de Communes des Avants-Monts”. From october 2016, two EVS volunteers, comining from Spain and Germany, will be hosted for ten months in Magalas. They will work in local youth organizations (middle schools, associations, Youth sector of the “Communauté de Communes”) to implement cultural activities for young people. They will inform youngsters about European mobility programs in local organizations, create and implement intercultural, artistic, linguistic and sportive workshops in middle schools, help to develop European mobility into the “Communauté de Communes” and have the opportunity to develop and carry out their own personal project. The two Voluntary Services will be integrated as a part of the local professional teams, which will allow them to experience the French way of working in youth sector and learn by doing. The goal of this methodology is to encourage them to be proactive and carry out their own initiatives. In order to do so, they will be assisted by a team of professional youth workers and French volunteers.Taking risks, responsibilities and autonomy are the basis of our methodology, in the aim of developing the self-confidence of the volunteers and highlighting the learnings and outcomes of their projects and actions.Each one of these activities should allow them to gain new competences and discover European diversity, enjoy their experience and share with others rewarding intercultural experiences. EVS has and important role in the personal and professional life of young people and the main goal of it is to empower their experience to ease as much as possible their social and professional integration. This EVS missions are also empowering partnerships between local and international youth organizations, they enhance the practices of youth workers involve in European mobility. European mobility makes more real different issues and allows to approach humanists values in a more tangible way.
