Study Abroad - Aix Volunteering

Many of IAU's students come with a desire to volunteer in the local community of Aix-en-Provence while enrolled in their program. The benefits of volunteering are similar in France and the U.S.; however, volunteer work in the context of a completely different culture and language offers fresh rewards and gratification. Most volunteer opportunities are only offered during the fall and spring semesters.

Former IAU students in Aix have volunteered by:

  • Helping middle school children with English at the Secours Catholique
  • Helping students who have failed the BAC and are trying again with their English at the Association AREFP
  • Going into Elementary school classrooms (with teacher present) and speaking to the children in English
  • Olive picking
  • Olive tree trimming
  • Planting and trimming new re-planted trees on Mont Sainte-Victoire
