Promotion et organisation d'ateliers numériques
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
The project "Promotion et organisation d'ateliers numériques", coordinated by MIJ, will involve one volunteer from germany and last 12 months. At MIJ, the young volunteer will discover the issues faced by young Caledonians related to unemployment and training and help them towards their social inclusion. One of his/her main tasks, will be to host, organize and promote ICTs workshops in the South province. MIJ believes that one of biggest brakes towards inclusion is the lack of ICT skills and access to computers. That is why, MIJ recently acquired tablet computers to be mobile and meet those who don't have access to ICT trainings. The main mission of the volunteers will be the promotion of mobility programs to young people from New Caledonia.
Mobility programs are solutions towards social inclusion for people willing to acquire new skills, discover new cultures or even participate to community projects. It is actually one of the priorities of the New Caledonian government and represents a growing interest among youngsters.
During their EVS experience, the German volunteer will have the opportunity to participate to many events in the South province and will get in touch with different people, mainly coming from tribes and usually far from urban areas. He/she will host and after a while, elaborate his/her own ICT workshops. Europe remains for many young Caledonians a mystery and the volunteer will also be the perfect ambassador of mobility programs and will thus share his/her living experience with the New Caledonians. Actually, one of the issues of this project could be "Youth speaks to Youth" because it is quite an important part of this project.
At MIJ, the volunteer will also discover Oceanian cultures and will better understand the issues and needs of young New Caledonians, especially those coming from remote tribal areas.
The volunteer will take part in many activities organized by MIJ: radio shows, events, fairs...
