Purpose of project: The project will take place in the “Centre pour le Développement Moteur”, formerly “Institut pour Infirmes Moteurs Cérébraux (IMC)”. The “Centre pour le Développement Moteur” is a school for physically and mentally disabled children and adolescents, from age 3 to 18, in Luxembourg. Our school provides individualised education, addressing their individual differences and specific needs. Most of the 63 pupils are in wheelchairs and they are originary from different countries. The spoken language in the school is “Lëtzebuergesch” (everyday spoken language; German and French are used in written communication). The volunteer will cooperate with teachers, social pedagogues, nurses and therapists. He/she will have the role of assistant to help pupils who are not able to work on their own. The general objectives are teaching by different means and activities to train the very basic knowledge of the pupils.

The project is open for volunteers aged 18 to 30 years. We have no special restrictions concerning gender. The volunteer should be a responsible person, with easy contact, interested in social work. S/he should be keen and motivated to work with disabled children and young people on a very basic level, which requires patience, initiative and creativity. Any volunteer’s interests and/or skills like music (playing an instrument) or painting are very welcomed. Understanding German and French will be very helpful.
