Getting started as a volunteer


Last week, us the volunteers of Hors Pistes travelled to Sommières, a commune here in France, to participate in the Erasmus+ National Agency seminar.

We discussed about the importance of the Youth Pass, we had an extended discussion about non-formal education and also about the issues that we might face in our volunteering period. The tutors were really interested in making us fully understand
what it means to be a volunteer and making the most out of it and all of that through really fun, cooperative intercultural and educational games.

The tutors did a really good job as well on breaking the ice between us as it was the first time that we got to know each other, and that created a really good vibe between us from the very first day. I truly believe that all the volunteers got a bit more enlightened on subjects regarding their volunteering and that we all had a great time there.
