The Maison des Associations Saint-Germanoises (MAS) is offering a brand new event on Saturday, November 27: solidarity meetings.
Organized in the premises of the structure, rue de la République in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, they mainly aim to put Saint-Germanois in touch with associations working in the field of solidarity.
“A decrease in the number of volunteers”
“For 18 months, it has appeared that there has been a decrease in the number of volunteers. This poses a lot of problems for associations in the town and surroundings. Some encounter difficulties in their interventions in the field. We therefore had the idea of bringing together most of the associations of Saint-Germain, and one of Chambourcy, which have a social and solidarity impact on our territory, to introduce them to the inhabitants so that they become actors of solidarity. “
During these first solidarity meetings, the structures will be brought together in five different rooms depending on the theme in which they are involved: employment, education, food and clothing aid, housing and finally reception and accommodation. listen.
Elected last March, Etienne Bertrand has also set himself the goal of opening the Mas more widely to young people.
“We need young people”
“There is a lot of generosity among young people and our role is to seek them out. Sciences Po, for example, includes many student associations but none is a member of the Mas. I would like to open up our magnificent house to them as much as possible. We need them, we need to rejuvenate the structures. “
Recently, the Mas had already laid the groundwork for this quest for new people by launching a scholarship for volunteers.
Available on the website, it lists all the human needs of associations.
Remember that the Mas has nearly 1,000 volunteers or beneficiaries and around 250 member associations.
