The Picardy Europe Direct Centre is the official information centre about the European Union in the region.Our 20 volunteers (one per each state member) will be hosted in a working environment where the key phrase is cultural diversity. As part of this team, the volunteers will work towards the following learning outcomes: French language skills, knowledge of the European Union and its workings, workings of French associations, working in a multicultural environment and working with different sectors of the public. Furthermore, they will be offered the opportunity to take French language classes at a suitable organisation or even at the university.In September, their main mission will be to be involved in the European Student Vllage dedicated to youth and European mobility programmes. They will also be involved in our yearly event "Ze Dictée" which is a dictation in English, German, Spanish and Italian. It will take place on the 26th September for the European Day of Languages. More than 900 participants are expected.In October and November, the volunteers will share their experience of mobility with the students in the "Maisons Familiales et Rurales" all around the region.In December, the volunteers will go in the schools, mainly in Amiens, to talk about the Christmas and New Years Eve traditions in their home country.All the different missions given to them will bring them closer to the people of Picardy, fostering dialogue and exchange and thus quickly improving their French language skills and knowledge of French and local culture.
