BVJ – your partner when organizing group trips for children, young people and students!
For an educational trip to the city, a a tailor-made school trip to Paris with visits to the National Assembly and the Senate; an educational trip to Paris for secondary schools, universities, sports and/or leisure clubs and associations; a class field trip to the very heart of Paris, very close to the Louvre Museum, and the Comédie Française – and not far from the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. As one of the top associations having long worked in partnership with public and private schools, BVJ and its establishments (approved by the Ministry of National Education and the Ministry of Youth and Sports), which are located in the very centre of Paris (Louvre / Opéra – Montmartre / Champs-Elysées) are actively engaged both during teaching hours and during the leisure time of the children, young people and students, alongside school and educational institutions, in partnership with local authorities, state departments and European and international institutions and organizations in more than 186 countries .
Now, more than ever before, we need to work on transforming teaching, so that it moves towards being about listening, inter-cultural partnership and exchange, towards international democratization and the success of all! This sharing of time and knowledge, in favour of the international education of young people, is something that goes on throughout the BVJ year. It is dispensed by facilitators and trainers as well as by occasional contributors (lecturers, primary and secondary school teachers, academics, etc.) – all of whom seek to achieve better international understanding, thanks to a network of professionals, associations, school and university establishments, – some of which have been working in partnership with BVJ for almost 70 years.
A TEAM AND THE SERVICES IT OFFERS TO MEET YOUR NEEDS
To meet these objectives, and, to set up an educational programme to match the teachers’ learning goals within the context of a school or educational trip to Paris, BVJ and its partners make its educational and professional accommodation teams available to all pre-constituted groups of young people, for broadening horizons, teaching and/or training sessions in the very heart of historical, cultural and educational Paris. In order to achieve this, classrooms, learning spaces, teaching and training spaces are completely at your disposal, 365 days a year – and we hope this will continue for another 70 years. We are working hard towards that goal. On request, it is possible to be granted exclusive use of a Youth Hostel, an exceptional hôtel particulier (town house), for a special occasion.
