International stays

Vacances & Loisirs

The Centre Azur is Member of the National Alliance of YMCAs, which organizes international stays as part of the OFAJ (Franco German Youth Office) and ERASMUS + (Europe) programs for young people. The purpose of these stays is to develop their autonomy, foster their commitment to society and participate in their personal fulfillment. The Centre Azur is an open place to the world and is willing to be a place of meeting, exchange and diversity.

Our stays are part of a relationship with the world. It’s about giving young people the keys to a better understand of our society and take an active role into it. In this purpose, the animation teams are keen to feed their critical sense of the world around us, to raise awareness of nature protection, citizenship and democracy through organized debates.

These stays are also the opportunity to learn to live together in respect of differences and to build friendships.

During their stay at the Centre Azur, our international groups take the opportunity to discover the richness of the Provencal cultural and historical heritage.

From Mucem in Marseille, to the island of Porquerolles, through the medieval village of Castellet, many enriching outings are available for your groups.
