Ceméa promote all forms of volunteering as a central element and a factor in the development of civil societies (in France, Europe and internationally) in order to act with others and transform the conditions for living together


In 2019, 29 volunteers were sent/hosted by 4 regional Ceméa Associations (Picardie, Pays de la Loire, Bourgogne-Franche Comté, Mayotte) with partners from 15 countries. The volunteers were sent to Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Morocco, Norway, Palestine, Poland, Romania, Tunisia and Senegal.)


Ceméa have been working since 2011 in the framework of European projects on the recognition of volunteering (non-professional youth work) from two perspectives:

  1. Frame of reference: definitions of non-formal education, quality criteria, pedagogical references, actors.
  2. The benefits of this experience for people and the recognition of non-formal learning (formalisation of support and evaluation procedures).


VOYCE was a project co-funded by the European Commission (the Erasmus+ programme), as part of a strategic partnership in the youth field. The project started in October 2016 and ended in September 2018.

The project was implemented by 9 organisations in 5 EU member states.

THEIR GOAL : Creation and validation of tools for the validation of young volunteers’ skills.

The intellectual products produced are available on the Voyce

VoSoTros Project (2021-2022)

This project builds upon previous projects, namely the recognition of Non-Formal Education learning and volunteer statuts. To do this, we have shared with our partners the need to identify the changes that volunteering education projects bring to people (our associations members and the target audiences we serve), to our organizations and to the territories in which we are involved.

To this end, we will develop a project to exchange our evaluation practices on these volunteer projects. The starting hypotheses are that volunteering is a vector of social inclusion and the reception in our associations has a specificity and promotes this inclusion
