The hosting organisation and the activities of the volunteer:

The MJC Rive Gauche is a cultural and social centre proposing non-formal education activities like singing, yoga, language lessons, and family excursions open to all age groups. For youngsters from 11 to 18 years, the centre organises recreation and school-based activities, as well as special leisure time programs during school holiday periods. It works with youngsters in order to transmit them different values such as non-formal education, solidarity, participation in democracy and active citizenship. The hosting of a European volunteer makes part of the associative project to raise awareness about other cultures and mobility projects among in particular the young members. The EVS volunteer will participate in the different activities with youngsters 11 to 18 years, set up own activities and help the youth workers to organise others. He/she will also participate in the gardening activities of the community garden Marsan maintained by the MJC Rive Gauche and update the blog dedicated to its development. These activities consist in practical garden work, but the main objectives of this project are social and educational: the bringing together of people with different backgrounds and ages, while creating awareness for environmental sustainability.

Volunteer's profile:

The volunteer should have notions of French, be autonomous and interested in youth work, event organisation, gardening and environmental sustainability.
