Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for volunteer for 1 European Voluntary Service placement called EVS and Beyond for 04 months, which will take place from 28th August 2016 to 28thDecember 2016 in Amiens (near Lille), France.
Description of the project:
Our main goal is to promote the European mobility and celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the EVS through a European Student Village that will take place in Amiens City Centre in September. We want this project to be big that is why we want to welcome 20 volunteers at the same time. We hope our volunteers will transmit the “motivation for mobility programmes” to every young people in Amiens and its region. The “European village” will not be the only event our volunteers will attend.

In September, for the European Day of Languages, they will also participate in our big event called “ZE DICTEE”, a dictation for students in foreign languages.In October and November, we will tour along the region to promote mobility and language learning in high schools.Finally, in December, we will go with our volunteers in schools so that they can share with the pupils traditions of their home country about Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
The main job of the EVS volunteers will be to promote European mobility, to share their experiences with young people from Picardy. They will represent our structure within forums, job fairs. Another main part of their work will be interventions at schools (from primary schools to university). We will ask the volunteers to prepare PowerPoint presentations about their countries (culture, history, language, actuality). We want them to work as ambassadors of their own country. Finally, we will take them to the EU Institutions in Brussels (3hrs from Amiens) to meet our representatives.

They will be entitled to holidays: 2,5 days per month. If they happen to work during the weekends, they can take the double off. They’ll picked up at the airport when they arrive and drop them off when they leave. In Amiens, local transport is covered. As for the profile of the volunteer, if they can have basic French, it is very good but if not, we will consider the candidates that are very interested in EVS.

Amiens is charming town (100.000 inhabitants) .There are a lot of students here at the University. Our organisation work closely with ESN (Erasmus Student Network) and we encourage our volunteer to be involved in their activities. We also have the famous Cathedral, the most beautiful of France.
Accommodation: The volunteers will be hosted either in a flat either at Amiens Youth Hostel with no costs for the volunteer.
Food and Pocket Money: We will provide €325 (every 30 days) to cover costs of food and extra expenses (ex: cleaning materials,) during non-working time.
The Erasmus + Programme will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants (up to 360 euros). We will provide full health insurance for the volunteer during the voluntary period.
All the interested people should fill send the CV and Motivation Letter in English to as soon as possible!
