Liven up the district
Start date: Jun 4, 2015,
End date: Apr 3, 2016
Context/ background of the projet :
On the district since 4 years, our action "Work with youth voluntary and mobility in urban districts" is financially supported by the global policy of the city.
We work with various organizations and try, by different activities from the short term voluntary to the EVS or civic service (long term), to put a new way of advertisement without consumption for the youth, which is new in the city of Le Mans.
We succeed to have a lot of participants during our outdoor activities, thanks to that we discussed with the inhabitants and find their expectations, we decided to get the project bigger and use different way to act with "Liven up the district".
We have a lot of children and teenagers on our projects, some of them come back everytime that we organise an action, we want to purpose more various things for them and have the ambition to make them think about international mobility. We also want to work with the adults to make them take part of their environment.
An EVS volunteer participation make real the concept of peer-to-peer learning and make the youth realize that it's possible to get involved in project, specially abroad.
