The participation of HE students in associations (charity, events…) provides students with the opportunity to take over the responsibility of real management, and experience in a real context some of the typical labour sector dynamics. One of the advantages is also related to engagement, for example if the student chooses a specific field of charity from among their interests, they should be more motivated.
Allows students to get involved on a voluntary basis in a short-term associative action (20 hours minimum) that can take place over full or half days during the academic year. The HE institution provides: Name of the association and contact details
Activity of the association
Location of the mission Date(s) or period
Contact for sending applications.
First step: A reflection before going off to work in the association: what motivations, expectations, apprehensions and why? This part must be written before leaving for the association, but will be part of the final report.
Second step: The student chooses the association among the proposed associations and signs an agreement between the association and the HE institution.
Third step: The student writes a report: a daily logbook, putting facts, analyses and feelings into perspective. These different elements can be presented separately or together, but they must all be present. It is advisable to write them at least once a day. The student must note down what surprises him from day to day from the beginning.if he doesn’t do it he will get used to it and what surprised him at first will have become “normal”.
A reflexion on the work of other people: In your opinion what are the motivations that motivate the people you meet during your mission to do what they do? Signature of the report by the association.
Assessment of the report:
written communication relevance of the observations analysis and adaptation to the context. Depending on the institution, ECTS credits can be granted for successful completion of work within the student association.
