The project is articulated around the host of 3 volunteers on 3 different structures from Tarbes’ urban area, the Foyer des Jeunes Travailleurs of Tarbes, the Youth Service of the town of Tarbes and the Maison des Jeunes et de la Culture of Aureilhan. This 3 Youth structures welcome a different public between 3 and 30 years old. The volunteers will be a member, in the 3 structures, of the team of animation. The goal of the project is to value the European citizenship, the mobility and the intercultural exchanges. To do it, we want to inform the widest possible public, first of all that of the host organizations, to widen then to all the young people of the urban area.
In 2011, Tarbes decided to create a Youth Citizen Life Service, for young people from 12 years old to 25 years old. The orientation of this service comes around four objectives :
– To make possible the participation of a large number of people in the amusement areas.
– To organize actions with a central theme : The engagment and the citizen.
– To strengthen the consistency territorial education.
– To involve the parents and a larger number of adults in the education improve.
This service has made possible, all around the town of Tarbes, the realization of this objectives, taking into account the basic differences of life : North, East, West, South and central territory. This service count 19 agents and run seven structures, under the responsability of a service chief and his vice-chief.
The responsable of educational service has proposed each action in the heart of those seven structures :
– To organize an educational welcome which has a general and public character as a mixture of social and cultural difference.
– To minimize the personal consumation activities and replace them by youth engagments.
– To develop activities which help to discover new experiences, knowing new people from different environment.
– To develop the short-term staying, learning sources of the collective life, autonomy, and broaden horizons.
he activities envisaged for the volunteers are the following ones:
Animation to the children or the young people according to the structures, administartive tasks in connection with the projects of animation or the functioning of the structure, participation in the team meetings, participation in the local exhibitions to promote Europe and ERASMUS+ program , organization of projects around Europe in the structures and more widely on the territory.
Formal times of evaluation will be scheduled to straighten if necessary, his various missions and consider needs and expectations of the volunteer on the duration of his stay.
In 2016/2017, on the urban area, 3 young people were hosted in EVS (in the FJT, the city of tarbes and in the MJC of Aureilhan). With our partners, we wish that the volunteers have common working times and can value Europe around a concerted action. So various thematic meetings were proposed throughout the presence of the volunteers.
We shall suggest to the volunteers of the year 2017/2018 realizing an action by implying the public of every structure. We wish to define the theme and the support with the hosted volunteers. We wish that this action deals with the values of Europe: solidarity, tolerance, nondiscrimination; puts forward the wealth of the cultures and the personalities of the volunteers; and give the possibility to the volunteers to discover other professional contexts, other teams of professionals.
Within the framework of this project, the volunteers, in connection with the animators, are going to build and to lead a collective action, implying the public of the 3 structures and to make share this experience by going to meet other public and structure. The purpose being to favor the cultural opening and to promote the Erasmus+ program.
All the supports created within the framework of the EVS are broadcast within every structure and beyond. They are a part of thematic weeks, in particular on various country of origin of the volunteers, the actions which we open on the city thanks to the various local partners. We participate in demonstrations or local forums then of which the volunteers can bring their experience besides the tools which we created (exhibition, video).
Furthermore, the local press is associated with the communication around the project, what brings an important visibility on the department allowing to inform all the structures which Erasmus +program could interest. The goal is, in the medium and long term to develop the hosting function on the department of Hautes-Pyrénées.
This application concerns the volunteering in tye city of Tarbes Youth Service.
