nyh esc solidarity corps france europeNoored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting calls for participants for European Solidarity Corps projects (ESC) which will take place from 24th August 2022 until 31st July 2023 in Le Mans, France.




About 440 pupils study at the technical college «Lycée professional Joseph Roussel». Located in the city center of Le Mans, we provide courses specialized in Social Care, Healthcare as well as Mass Catering. Our technical college has always been developing international partnerships and organizing language and cultural exchanges in Spain and the United Kingdom as well as internships in Spain and Greece to develop students’ cultural openness. Our project is to develop students’ European awareness too and help them to open up more and more to the world and others. You’ll be part of this European adventure!


The volunteer will be involved in the various activities of the college:

  • Your role is to promote Europe and your country among students (through socio-educational activities, language workshops and refresher courses, a Club Europe) and help the college in forging links with other schools and thus, create new working or mobility partnerships.
  • You will manage the Europe corner, in collaboration with the librarian, and work on communication actions (website of the college, blog, Facebook page, the press).
  • You will be invited to develop Europe-related games and recreational activities over lunchtime.
  • You will especially work on mobility programs: encourage students to take part in a European experience and promote mobility in Europe through the Language Club and the European section, support students in writing their application form (CV, cover letter), brief them before departure, follow-up, develop the optional Euromobipro mobility section. You will intervene during Individualized Support sessions to help students and take part in collaborative projects, Etwinning for instance.
  • You will come along with students to any exterior visit (+ travels and stays in France and abroad, professional mobility abroad).
  • You will take part in any key event of the school: Welcome Days in September, Olympiads (September), Christmas, Careers Fair (February), Carnival, Open Day (March), Day of Talents (April), Europe Day, etc. Any other suggestion will be appreciated for the European Day of Languages or Erasmus Days.
  • In addition, the volunteer will work on some common projects with the 11 other European volunteers staying in Sarthe with the Maison de l’Europe which is the coordinator of these European Solidarity Corps projects.

The local training centres are called: the “Maisons Familiales Rurales” or MFR (literary translated as the “rural family houses”). The volunteer will work in one of the 6 MFRs. Each MFR hosts young pupils, have difficulties with the French traditional school system and who are looking for a new way of learning. The MFRs are all located in Sarthe and each MFR is located in a different village.

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.
