Une année de volontariat européen au service des autres
Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

VISA-AD is a non profit Union of Associations that, since its setting up in 1959, has been offering to young people a formative experience by engaging in a voluntary service project of discovery, experimentation and self-construction.For this project, we would like to host in Picardie egion 2 volunteers with fewer opportunities sent by our partners Voice of Rural Child and Miras-Moldova. The young people that will participate to this project do not have a specific profile, except their motivation to live an experience of social solidarity and peace in an intercultural context.The project must, above all, allow the volunteer to find his place in an institution for children confronted with social problems and to discover the daily reality of the lives of these children and their situations. The presence of young European volunteers in a Home that shelters children and adolescents from disadvantaged settings allows them to reflect on the acceptance of differences, teaches them to welcome an individual who is a foreigner, creates an openness to the world and favours the construction of Europe under the value of solidarity. This project is also intended to be a tool by which the young volunteer will enrich his experiences by giving him the possibility of meeting goals which, until then, perhaps seemed out of reach, thereby allowing him to confront with confidence the situations that await him in the future.Supporting young European volunteers means for us to give them the opportunity to experience life outside their usual boundaries, based on values of European and even worldwide citizenship construction. They contribute through their action to make Europe closer to people, to break down barriers of intolerance and mistrust and build a Europe strong of solidarity and sharing. Working together to build a more solid basis for Europe. To allow young people, through a voluntary service project, to discover other cultures for their own experience, but also to develop national and international relationships which objective is peace and justice. It’s reminding them through the EVS, the values of tolerance, solidarity, responsibility and mutual respect as the basis of our social life and the European Political project.We can see year after year, with these young Europeans who will have to be makers of tomorrow in our society, the achievements of their volunteer experience:- a non-formal professional experience and intercultural learning, by facilitating social integration and discovery of community life, by getting involved, which will help them making future human, citizens and professional choices- a contribution to the development of local communities - a communication about the European programs through their testimonies- a necessary follow-up that makes us discuss the experiences of other organizations. - The development of networks of associations in France and abroad. - a training in the citizenship consciousness that goes beyond interests .An invitation to see beyond the end of one’s nose and to expand its interests, - more maturity and more confidence to undertake and to go ahead in life.
