Canadian Intern in France

Canadian French Cultural Exchange

We are very happy to announce the arrival of our first intern for this season. Meghan from Toronto in Canada arrived last Saturday and had the opportunity to straight away immerse herself in French culture by visiting a “Brocante” (a flea market) in Bardenac on Sunday morning. In the afternoon Meghan and other volunteers went to see a local football match in Chalais.

Meghan has a degree in Sociology and Women Studies and has worked in Customer Services in a Transport company. She has got a passion for travelling and decided to temporarily leave her job to be able to come to France to improve her French language skills.

The duration of her internship will be 4 weeks. During this time she will learn how to manage and run La Giraudière. This includes the whole application process of our interns and volunteers, the communication with local service providers, the management of our current volunteers and interns (who is taking over which jobs), accounting, social media and other administrative tasks. Today, on her first day of work, she started to have a look at the incoming applications for internships and volunteering programs and sent her first emails to applicants.

This internship will provide Meghan with necessary skills to enhance her job search when she is back in Canada. We are very happy to be able to welcome you to our international team and look forward to working with you!
