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 Region "Midi-Pyrénées" 1 volunteers. One other volunteer (non EU citizen) will be hosted in Villefranche de Rouergue.We would like to go on hosting a volunteer in order to :- stimulate a sense of active citizenship , particularly of European citizenship, among young people - reinforce the mutual understanding between young people of various countries - facilitate European cooperation in the field of the youth - reinforce a policy of opening-up to Europe The volunteer will set up and implement activities for secondary school pupils for breaktimes or for the study periods, in collaboration with the supervisors and/or the school librarian.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.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.
