Let’s live Europe in rural areas











Name of the project: Let’s live Europe in rural areas

Hosting organization: Maison de l’Europe Le Mans-Sarthe

Period: 24.08.2022 – 31.07.2023

Where: Le Mans, França

Vacancy: 6

Brief description:

One of the challenges of this project is to bring Europe in rural areas toward pupils who have no knowledge at all about Europe and its countries. Therefore, the transports issue is important and all applicants must have a driving license. You can choose to apply for the 6 vacancies, or choose specific training centres regarding the topics of the diplomas prepared by the pupils (healthcare, forest…) for example.

Volunteers will be regarded as full members of their team and will be included in the daily work of each centre. They will have the opportunity to use and improve their own abilities: volunteers will develop their sense of initiative, gain new skills and knowledge through the organisation of different activities for the MFR (workshops, courses, individual support, sports, games, presentations, lectures). The volunteer must therefore be willing to work with
teenagers and to use non formal learning’s methods.

Participant profile:

The volunteer will work full time with theteam of the MFR from Monday to Friday, on a 30-hour week basis. A ccording to the time of the year and the activities planned, the volunteer might be asked to work 40 hours a weel. In
that case, he/she will only work 20 hours the following week. The planning will be organised in each training centre at the beginning of the project, depending on the activities, languages courses, transportation system, and holidays of the training centre. Once a week, volunteer might be asked to take part in evening gatherings with the students. From time to time, the volunteer will have the opportunity to work in Le Mans with the other volunteers in order to
build a common project.

The volunteer will be involved in the various activities of the school. We expect you to:

1 – Raise european awareness:
At various times during the pupils’ training (evening gatherings, lunch time, breaks, study time, etc.), the volunteer will set up activities meant to promote discovery, exchange and cultural approach of countries: presentations of the volunteer’s culture for example (through photos, videos, arts, national cuisine, games, etc.). The volunteer is also expected to promote the European solidarity corps program and other possibilities to go and travel abroad.

2 – Develop educational and pedagogical activities:As a full member of the team, the volunteer will participate in the activities led by the members of the teaching team, will organize his/her own activities, and will work on communication tools (videos, booklets, social medias, interviews). The volunteer will have the opportunity to talk about his/her mission or country during other events organised outside the MFR. The volunteer might participate in some school trips, study visits… in France or abroad!

3 – Work with the 6 others volunteers of the 6 training centres:
The volunteers will participate in a common project: they will take part in the organisation of Europe Day in Le Mans around the 9th May 2022. Common projects can also be linked with environment or the future of Europe according to your goals and whishes. They will be supported by the teams of the Maison de l’Europe. As such, they will regularly go to Le Mans.
