Yerrf project launches with a video

Bonjour tout le monde!

La Giraudère is known for hosting international volunteers every year since 2008. This year starting from July 2017 added EVS volunteers to its programs to help with an Erasmus+ project entitled YERRF, acronym of “Young Entrepreneurs Rejuvenate Rural France”.

The purpose of the YERRF project is to encourage young people to learn business skills and to consider entrepreneurship as a career. You can find more specific information about the project in our website:


EVS volunteers


We have already completed the first phase:

  • We have published the first 31 pages of our website;
  • We created a video explaining our project and the volunteering experiences at  la Giraudière; this video was directed by a Lithuanian volunteer, Gary, and you can find it on youtube at: Yerrf project video
  • Furthermore, we have completed the phase of researches and sent over 200 letters to universities, business and languages schools, banks and other organisation that could be potential partners for our project.



If you would like to join our group of volunteers and help us with the YERRF project you can contact us here: YERRF contact form. We are situatezd in the south west of France and you can see our location by visiting  Location of YERRF Project.

All help for our Erasmus project is welcomed.
