EVS Seminar for La Giraudière’s volunteers

Evs Seminar in Sommières

As part of the erasmus program, the two EVS volunteers who were already arrived at La Giraudière to start the YERRF project, Deniz from Turkey and Sofia from Italy, attended a week orientation in Sommières, little town about 22km far from Nîmes.


Julie and Hélène, members of the Agence Erasmus+ de Jeunesse & Sport, planned the activities aimed to welcome us to France, teach us further information about the EVS program and learn more about our projects and objectives.

It was also an amazing opportunity to meet international young volunteers, from Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Marocco, Estonia who are now in various towns of France and have a cultural exchange.


Furthermore, we visited another interesting historical town in France, Sommières: we enjoyed the fascinating view from the castle, we explored their historical sites and we took part to their fairs and local parties, plus we talked with local people who were very friendly and welcolming.


Despite the long journey by train to arrive in Sommière from Bordeaux, it was definetly worth it. Thanks to Erasmus+ and the YERRF project, we can take part in this experience abroad, meet international volunteers and explore France.
