EVS in Strasbourg (France)

One Year of European Volunteering at the Service to Others

Project description

The Jean Sturm Gymnasium is a secondary school. It is one of the oldest schools in Strasburg as it was created in 1538. Nowadays the Jean Sturm Gymnasium schools nearly 1100 pupils (14 to 18 year-old teenagers) and 129 people work in this institution (teachers, clerks and technicians included).

The weekly schedule ranges from Monday morning to Friday evening and is based on a 33-hours- week, with a break during the day. A typical week may be:
– a time of presence and dialogue in the pupils’ living areas
– leading workshops according to the volunteer’s personal project
– extra-curricular coaching
– team meetings and organization times.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

As far as community life is concerned, the volunteer will be hosted in a 6-rooms- flat with other volunteers from the Lucie Berger school (partner school), located about 10 minutes walk from the Jean Sturm Gymnasium. They will share the kitchen, living and dining-room, bathroom but will have also an individual bedroom. They will have to follow the rules in force in the hosting institution.
