The Youth Information Office of Brest, France (in french, BIJ) is participating in the IVO4All experiment (International Volunteering Opportunities for All). The objective is to facilitate access to international mobility in the frame of the Service Civic for anyone with lesser opportunities. It combines three month of mission in France and three month abroad. Wafia, Théo, Fayssal and Jérémie were chosen by the BIJ among ten candidates to participate in the project. They will leave soon to Quebec for three month.

“I am doing this for the intercultural exchange” says Théo. Fayssal explains “I chose the project because it will allow me to travel. I would like to learn English and come back with skills in order to find a job”. Started in 2015, the experimentation phase of the project will end next October. Then evaluation and recommendations will follow.
