HOST ORGANISATION:
The organization of Vir'volt, Solidarités Jeunesses Ile de France is the local branch of a national movement: Solidarités Jeunesses. It has the same values as the national movement. Beside the aims of peace that are expressed by our international and national movement, there is a strong will to commit ourselves to local development.
To reach its aims, the association uses the following tools:
(1)
The organisation of international workcamps (short and long term), organising projects of general interest in or around the hosting centre.
(2)
The organisations hosts different groups, (schools, social centres, but also free leisure time groups...) .
(3)
The organisation of trainings, seminars and different activities which support the learning process of the participants.
(4)
We send volunteers abroad, on international workcamps, medium and long term voluntary service, or trainings and seminars.
(5)
The development of cultural projects for young people with local partners
(6)
The organisation and participation in activities regarding social, economical and professional inclusion.
(7)
The organization of activities for young people with fewer opportunities, including preparations and sending volunteering in France and abroad.
PROJECT:
Through their commitment into the local project of Vir'Volt, we give to the volunteers a sense of responsibility and we offer them an experience which will make them think of their citizenship and the role they can play back in their own community. We are convinced that responsibilities volunteers can take on our projects are giving them a useful experience and encourage them for being more responsible. It also provides them a rich experience for their future social and professional life.
In short-term as in long-term volunteering projects, we organise a weekly evaluation with the group of volunteers aimed to assess collective life and the feelings of volunteers concerning the project. There is also concrete time for training, discussions, analysis of their motivation, of the objectives of the activities and the results. Individual evaluations are organised when volunteers need it (at least once a month).
For long-term EVS :
Working hours are around 30 hours per week. We give informations to the volunteers regarding the nature of the activities they will work on and local projects: theater projects, international workcamps, sport activities, travelling in other delegations or Solidarites Jeunesses, ...
Week-ends are free and often focused on discovering local heritage and french culture. Volunteers can also participate to the activities of Vir'Volt-Solidarites Jeunesses that are sometimes organised during the week-end.
The wide range of activities offered to the volunteers make their learning process really diverse. Volunteers can get involved in :
- the organisation and the leading of workcamps (workcamps can be painting, gardening, masonery, etc.)
- participate to meetings and promote European and international volunteering.
- Help the team running the daily life of the association (activities for local youth, meetings and events between volunteers, etc.).
- Participate and organise cultural events with local young volunteers and local partners (and then try to get young people involved in the association).
- Organise workshops in the schools of La Ferté-sous-Jouarre
- take part in the life of the place by helping with the hosting of groups, trainings, etc.
Each volunteer will get involved in these activities after having discussed with permanent workers of the association and other volunteers. Coordinators will organise meetings with the volunteers to prepare the activities, regulate and meet their needs. They will have to share the tasks together.
It will also be possible for each volunteer to suggest a personal project which will enrich the place and benefit for the different projects of Vir'Volt.
On a general manner, projects we are running are a great opportunity for discovering collective life and live with other people that they may never has known in an other context. That is how we aim to learn democracy, tolerance and decision-making process.
The main motivation for us to host international volunteers is that it gives an intercultural dimension that improves our actions. Intercultural exchanges through concrete work and collective life enhances our projects and encourage a reciprocity in the learning process of all participants in the organisation. Volunteers brings their own ideas, culture and values with their motivation and initiatives.
In each activity, volunteers experiment their sense of responsibility and autonomy. Their initiatives are welcome and will be strongly supported by permanent members. In case of any difficulty, the volunteer will be accompanied till he will be able to find his place in the project.

Da Gennaio 2014 è attivo un nuovo programma chiamato Erasmus+, al cui interno è confluito il Servizio Volontario Europeo.

Cos’è il Servizio Volontario Europeo?
Il Servizio Volontario Europeo permette ai giovani di impegnarsi nel volontariato per un massimo di 12 mesi, in un Paese diverso da quello di residenza. L’esperienza accresce la solidarietà tra i giovani ed è un vero "servizio di apprendimento". Infatti, oltre ad operare a favore delle comunità locali, i volontari apprendono nuove capacità e nuove lingue, entrando in contatto con nuove culture. Un progetto di questo tipo si avvale dei principi e dei metodi di apprendimento non formale.
Tutti i partecipanti allo SVE hanno diritto a ricevere il Certificato Youthpass, che descrive e convalida l’esperienza di apprendimento non formale e informale e i risultati acquisiti durante il progetto (risultati dell’apprendimento).

Un SVE non è…

  • occasionale, non strutturato, part-time
  • un tirocinio in azienda
  • un lavoro retribuito (e non deve sostituire lavori retribuiti)
  • un’attività ricreativa o turistica
  • un corso di lingua
  • sfruttamento di manodopera a basso costo
  • un periodo di studio o di formazione professionale all’estero

Chi può partecipare?

  • Giovani tra i 18 ed i 30 anni (non si deve aver compiuto il 31° anno d'età al momento della domanda di finanziamento)
  • Legalmente residenti in uno dei Paesi dell'Unione Europea

Quanto costa?

Il programma Erasmus+ finanzia:

  • Contributo alla spese di viaggio di andata e ritorno dei partecipanti calcolato sulla base della distanza del viaggio (esempio per distanze tra i 100 e i 499 Km è di 180 euro)
  • le spese di vitto e alloggio (attraverso un contributo economico che viene dato all'associazione di accoglienza non al volontario)
  • le spese per il trasporto da casa a lavoro,
  • una copertura assicurativa sanitaria con AXA
  • la formazione linguistica
  • un Pocket Money mensile per il volontario per le proprie spese personali di circa un centinaio di euro, a seconda del paese
