EVS in Wangen (France)

One Year of European Volunteering at the Service to Others

Project description

The home” THE FREIHOF ” hosts 52 under-age children aged between 3 and 18 years old, and young adults up to 21 years old, within the scope of educational assistance, decided on by the children’s judge, when the child’s health, the education, personal and relational developments seem to be compromised in his family circle. One of our objectives is to give the children occasions to reconcile them with themselves and with the others and to gain in confidence.
The Freihof puts also flats at the disposal of families.
The following activities will be offered to the volunteer:
• helping out the children with their homework
• participating in organizing leisure activities
• participating in organizing cultural outings and excursions
A part of the volunteer’s schedule will be dedicated to the children’s accompaniment:
• Taking the children to school, to the doctor’s or to associations and sports clubs
• Sharing meals
• Assisting the children at bedtime

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The Freihof is located in Wangen, a wine-growing village of 700 inhabitants. Wangen benefits from a convenient public transport network since it is the very centre of a triangle drawn by the cities of Strasbourg – Saverne-Molsheim,

A flat is meant for the volunteer. The accommodation consists in two rooms, kitchen, and bathroom. It is situated in the Home’s area, but has an independant access.
The volunteers will have either the possibility to eat the meals prepared by the Home’s canteen, or to prepare themselves the meals.

Training during the project

Several trainings are proposed throughout the year by VISA ad and by the French National Agency.
