What is it?

A civic service is a mission of general interest that allows you to work in the service of the community in an association or a public organization. It's a bit like an internship, but you don't need to have a diploma or a job to do it.

A civic service lasts between 6 and 12 months. You receive a certificate at the end of your civic service.

During your civic service, you participate in the activities and daily life of your association in connection with your professional project.
