General context of the mission.

The city of La Riche, through various activities, offers young volunteers the opportunity to undertake projects linked with the community’s goals in the fields of education, sustainable development, energy-saving, or interculturality. The main objective of the mission is to highlight the links and projects of the city with the international community (in particular through its twinning committee with the town of Estarreja in Portugal) and to promote the various possibilities of international mobility to all young people living in the city.
