During the preparation, the volunteers of CREFAD Auvergne had a busy schedule: hiking discovery in the volcanoes, German courses with an ambassador from the Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO), meeting with former volunteers and animation trials.
This was also an opportunity to meet other volunteers welcomed in communities or associations of the territory.
Later, the volunteers participated in a three days pre-departure training session implemented in the frame of IVO4All, in Paris.
Finally, before their departure, they attended a training session on how to implement a collective method of actions’ elaboration, a day about creativity.
Here’s a text in French, written by Victor, one of the volunteers going for three month in a gypsy school, in Hungary:
“Se réveiller, manger, boire, fumer,
S’en aller, marcher, voir, flâner,
Consommer, payer, boire, parler,
Echanger, rigoler, croire, aimer,
Réfléchir, s’interroger, partir, faudrait ?
Revenir, marcher, courir, rentrer,
Dormir, rêver, recommencer. “
