ESC offer in the House of Europe

1 opportunity for you!

We are looking for a young European volunteer who is motivated, full of ideas to share about Europe with local inhabitants during a year, and be part of our team!

La Maison de l’Europe Le Mans-Sarthe, hereinafter referred to as the House of Europe of Le Mans, also a Europe Direct Information Centre, is a non-profit organisation with no political or religious affiliation. In our daily activities, our purpose is to raise awareness and inform the inhabitants of the French department of Sarthe about European citizenship and thus contribute to building a Europe of citizens. The House of Europe is a friendly place, ideal for discovering, meeting, experiencing, and exchanging on Europe!

As an information Centre, we provide our visitors with information on the European Union and its politics but also on other European countries. Our Centre puts at your disposal a wide range of documents, books, brochures, and board games about Europe. We organize educational workshops on Europe on a nearly daily basis in schools, leisure centers, twinning committees, and social centers. We also organize workshops and fun activities within our premises to enable primary and secondary school pupils to discover Europe.

The House of Europe is a LEAD structure for the European Solidarity Corps program (ESC). Since 2016, we have welcomed more than 50 European long-term volunteers. We manage an Erasmus+ VET project and lead a consortium of 11 VET schools: Mov’Europe. We are raising awareness about mobility programs and encouraging students from underprivileged and rural backgrounds to have a mobility experience. As an Information Point for the Franco-German Youth Office, we advise young people on Franco-German mobility programs too. We also work with the Erasmus+ French Agency to develop Erasmus+ project in our region.
