The action "Success at school thanks to Volunteering" started in Essonne in 2013 in the framework of the European project SAS could go on in Massy thanks to the partnership of the College Blaise Pascal and the City Hall of Massy. The iriv offers pedagogical sessions to youngsters of the College Blaise Pascal to initiate them to volunteering.
The iriv organises two European events in 2015: "Promoting diversity and struggling against discrimination on the labour market", in October 2015 and "Combining professional learning to linguistic learning in Vocational Education & Training", in October 2015.
Together with Enda Europe, iriv initiated the Di & Di project in 5 European countries: France (leader), Germany, Bulgaria, Italy and Switzerland. Transfer of innovation of the Diversité + project directed by Enda Europe (2007-2012) and former projects Migrapass (2010-2012) and mediateur Interculturel (2009) initiated by iriv, the Di&Di project is a Leonardo da Vinci project aiming at designing a tool and strategy for two specific target groups: qualified youngsters and low qualified women, both shraing a migratory background. Professionals in charge of integration will be involved in both the training and mentoring.
The iriv is the French partner of the Vintage project, a Key Activity 2 project (Lifelong Learning programme) that offers a strategy to enhance VET integrated language learning. Initiated by the Foundation ECAP (Switzerland, leader), this project gathers six European countries in Germany (Arbeit und leben Hamburg e.V), in France (iriv), in Italy (Universita per Stranieri di Perugia & Centro territoriale permanente di Gallarate), in Greece (Militos Emerging Technologies & Services) and in Norway (European Center for Women and Technology).
