Rêve et Réalise - Dream, Do and Achieve

English Access Microscholarship Programme Rêve et Réalise is another way to adapt and transform the governmental programme of “civic service”, which grows at a very impressive rate in France these past few years, and optimize its quality, impact and outputs. Unicité offers young people an 8-month project, managed by an experimented coordinator able to advise, teach and train all young people in all the steps of their project. The project is open to every young person (regardless of qualification and competences) whith high motivation and the idea and willingness to develop a project with a soliarity scope.

The nature of the project is up to the volunteers. As they apply to the programme “rêve et réalise”, they have to submit an original idea with a draft of plan to achieve it over 8 months. They are selected according to their motivation and the accuracy of their project draft.

English Access Microscholarship Programme The coordinator gives courses about project writing, budget, communication, evaluation. Each young person is supported by a Mentor/ Entrepreneur who brings expertise and professional network. Young people meet the coordinator on a regular basis in a collective workspace where they can work freely from their place and go to meetings.

During the 6th month, all young people are “challenging their project” in front of a jury of experts and mentors to explain their achievements and difficulties and receive advice and help if necessary.

Beneficiaries of the project:

What people say

“Many young people lack self-confidence because unperforming at school (or family issues) put them down and make them feel they can’t bring anything to the society.
The objective of this program is to show them they can be change-makers. They know what are the problems or needs of the area they live in and they can use their passions and skills to make the world better.
We only give them the tools to achieve their goals and reveal their potential as project leaders. It’s an everyday life challenge to highlight the « small » successes but it is worth it!
As we are working with young people from different backgrounds, we try to respect their needs and adapt our methodology. However, working with other 18 project leaders make them realize they all have something to bring to each other!“
