Duration of the project
The volunteer will mainly work within the childcare micro-center of Eleu-dit-Leauwette, a small town of 3000 inhabitants located 2 km away from Lens.
The main activity of volunteer within Le Petit HOME consists in accompanying children (6 weeks to 3 years old) in the micro-nursery of Eleu-dit-Leauwette. It is mostly about talking on a daily basis with the kids in their mother language. The everyday life is mainly in recreational activities, entertainment, motivational and educational games, reading, nursery rythmes, dances, stories. As part of this routine, the volunteer will always be paired with a member of the team. He/she may, if he/she wishes, to learn the gestures of routine tasks like for instance the changes or the preparation of meals. The arrival of a volunteer in the childcare of Eleu will be supported by a broad communication plan: designing and distributing bilingual flyers, meeting partners and organization of meetings with families. The involvement and contribution of the volunteer will be determining. The association, in full development, often organizes events: inaugurations, structures anniversary, Christmas and New Year, families’ animations. In addition, the memberships increase significantly therefore these events are more consistent and require more organization (authorization applications, design and production of invitations, communication, logistics implementation and supplier’s orders). The volunteer may find in these additional activities, if desired, the opportunity to discover other professional aspects and get involved.
We require criminal record check or an equivalent and compulsory vaccinations to work in contact with young children in a community. Regarding the volunteer’s profile Le Petit HOME would like to host someone who is: – Aged over 18 years old, – Showing a real interest for children (from 2 months to 3 years old) – Having previous experience of working on contact with children in the context of artistic or cultural activities, sports or other.
