La Giraudiere welcomes it’s first Irish volunteer for 2017 season

Irish volunteers in France

Asha, who is presently studying arts at University College Cork (UCC) chooses La Giraudiere for her first volunteering experience abroad.

Asha decides to use her volunteering experience to help her find her career path as she unsure for her future. At La Giraudiére she hopes to explore her different interests while working with not only her fellow volunteers, but the community.


For Asha, and anyone who chooses to come to La Giraudiére, it is a valuable experience to gain before entering the world of careers. Here you learn how to be part of a team. Successful coexistance is almost necessary to be a volunteer or an intern here, it is a value that generally everyone will abide by. Skills like this are important in the workplace or in almost any life setting. This is something that has helped our Irish volunteer integrate into our situation, and something she believes will help anyone who needs life experience or is a little bit on the fence about what it is they really want to do.

So far Asha has explored photography, writing and manual duties. She is a lover of the French language, which she uses to bond with the locals here at La Giraudière.

So far she is enjoying her stay here and is very much looking forward to being the media person at LG and posting future blog posts. A bientot!
