-Animation and intercultural exchange in a french high school-
Starting date: 01 october 2018 – 9 months
Application deadline: 30/03/2018 included
As coordinating organization, proposes an EVS project in the hosting organisation called MFR du Domaine de la Saulsaie, from the 1 st of october 2018 to the 30 th of june 2019 (9 months).
The Domaine de la Saulsaie MFR (Maison Familiale et Rurale) is an associative establishment that belongs to the movement of Maisons Familiales et Rurales that trains 70 000 young people from 14 years old to bachelors' degree every year.
France holds more than 400 MFR in total.
The Domaine de la Saulsaie MFR develops trainings from second year of highschool to technical diploma in agriculture (2 years after highschool) in services to individuals, horticulture and vegetable gardening, organised as:
– From age 16 to 18, Services to Individuals and to Territories.
– From age 18 to 20, BTSA, Development and Attraction of Rural Areas.
– From age 15 to 18, Management of Agricultural Exploitation
– From age 15 to 18, Horticulture
For each subject it is possible for the students to complete half of their education at school and half during an internship in a professional environment.
The MFR welcomes an average of 180 young people every year.
Part of the training modules proposed at the MFR are related to general topics (french, mathematics, history, biology, ecology, physical and sportive education…) and others are more linked to profesionnal issues.
The MFR has a network of local partners: institutions (city council…), firms, associations… with available placement for internships, and also different organisations that propose workshops about a specific topic.
In several workshops, students are invited to work on projects related to mobility, which stands as an important issue for the MFR organisation. All the students get the opportunity to do an internship abroad for a 3 or 4 weeks duration. For example, some students of SAPAT section use to leave every year for 3 weeks in Denmark or Norway, doing an internship in organisations dealing with little children or elderly persons. Other youngsters leave at the end of the year to get involved in international voluntees workcamp. Therefore, the cultural and linguistic (in english) support constitue a real need for the MFR. The trainers have been invested on this topic for a long time now, with in addition for 3 years now the benefic support provided by the EVS
The main part of the EVS project will occur in the MFR du Domaine de la Saulsaie, situated near the Montluel village. For the week-ends (from Thursday evening until Monday morning) and holidays, the accomodation of the volunteer will be in volunteers house, in Lyon.
Montluel is a french village in the department of Ain that belongs to the Auvergne-Rhône- Alpes region. The inhabitants of Montluel are called the Montluistes. Montluel enjoys a privileged position because it is located between the urban area of Lyon and the Ain countryside.
The climate is semi-continental with Mediterranean influences: summers are hot and sunny and winters are cold. Montluel is also located next to the Dombes region, famous for its thousands little lakes with rich flora and fauna. The village is quite large and it is divided into three areas:
the town, the wooded hill of Côtière and the plateau.
Montluel is only 23 km away from Lyon, 44 km from Bourg-en- Bresse and 39 km from Villefranche-sur- Saône. Montluel is located 10 minutes from the motorway A42 to Geneva and it is crossed by the RN84. The departemental couches (line 171 from Montluel to Lyon) and the Rhône-Alpes TER train allows you to reach Lyon or Ambérieu-en- Bugey following the RN84.
In 2014 Montluel registered a population of 7036. The majority of the population works in the urban area of Lyon.
The MFR Domaine de la Saulsaie is situated quite far away from the center of the village of Montluel. It's located in a really rural place, without regular public transports.
The office of coordination is situated in Lyon, the 3 rd biggest city of France, at the East. Lyon benefits from a temperate climate and offers all kinds
of services and the access to leisure is well developed. It’s a city really touristic, with a strong cultural patrimony.
