The International Youth AssemblyThere’s no better way to know and serve our Sacred Heart Network than by celebrating our heritage and looking toward our future actions at the "Faces of the Heart" International Youth Assembly. As student ambassadors you will work, have fun and spend time with your peers from all over the world. We will be lodged at La Perverie boarding school. Our itinerary includes 3 main locations: Nantes, Joigny and Paris. We will discuss global current issues and ways we can take action. We aim to produce multimedia material that will be later used within the network of Sacred Heart schools around the world. Students are expected to prepare some presentations before we meet, participate in all the activities while we are there and complete a few follow up tasks for the good of the community they represent. We will work in English. Basic knowledge of French will be a plus, if you want to interact with the locals and help the group navigate the places we go to.
We would love to have a true international team, represeting different cultures and continents.
