IE News Team

Maïté Chailleux has a passion for art and furniture restoration and has contacted us in her search for the perfect volunteering position with the European Voluntary Service. Can you help?

Maïté is 24 and lives in France. Brimming with enthusiasm, she graduated in restoration of furniture and works of art and wants to complete an EVS project (European Voluntary Service) in heritage preservation.

The EVS programme is open to young people aged from 17 to 30 and provides volunteering opportunities from 2 weeks to 12 months in another country in the European Union. Find out more here: https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/european-voluntary-service-accreditation-for-youth-organisations.

Potential host organisations can be a non-profit companies and associations (museums, associations, national organisations, etc.) in the field of heritage where she can be involved in a project that might involve restoration, knowledge sharing, showcasing heritage preservation, raising awareness about conservation and learning more about related jobs, etc.

The search starts now for a placement that she could take up in 2017. The host organisation must obtain accreditation from the Erasmus Programme in order for the EVS placement project to be approved.
