nyh esc solidarity corps france esc


Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting calls for participants for European Solidarity Corps (ESC) long-term volunteering project which means to educate on Europe, cultural diversity, and mobility in Le Mans, France

DATES: 20th of August, 2024 to 25th of July, 2025 (11 months)

About the project:

“Let’s live Europe in Sarthe” is a collective ESC project in the region of Le Mans, in France, that involves 10 volunteers in different places of volunteering, with a common goal: to educate on Europe, cultural diversity, mobility, and help people to get more easily in touch with Europe in making it more concrete by exchanging with people from different European countries.

We strongly believe that meeting others can help strengthening open-mindedness, equality, diversity, and citizenship, and our team of volunteers is taking on this challenge all year long!

You can apply for more than one if you are interested by several volunteer missions:
• Volunteering at the House of Europe (1 volunteer opportunity)
• Volunteering at the rural boarding schools MFR (3 volunteer opportunities)
• Volunteering at Joseph Roussel high school (1 volunteer opportunity)
• Volunteering at the “Les Horizons” high school (1 volunteer opportunity)
• Volunteering at the municipality of the town of Le Mans (2 volunteer opportunities)
• Volunteering at the municipality of Saint-Georges du Bois (1 volunteer opportunity)
• Volunteering at the social center of Le Grand-Lucé (1 volunteer opportunity)

Aims of the project:

The goals of the different projects are very similar: the idea is to make people in our region, Sarthe, aware of the European Union, to encourage interculturalism and openness to others, and to make the (young) people you work with aware that European mobility is also possible for them. By welcoming European volunteers all year, the public of the different places will be able to deconstruct their prejudices and be less afraid of differences, while learning to interact with someone from another culture. All the volunteers are to develop common projects and enhance the presence of European volunteers in the region of Sarthe.

Participant profile:

18-30 years old

All the volunteers are provided with insurance, accommodation, pocket and food money. Travel expenses: according to the calculated distance.
