ESC -volunteer from Belgium Valentine


I am Valentine, I am 18 years old and I am Belgian. I have circus since my 5 years and I was a circus teacher assistant for 4 years. I have my animation license, I love children!

I wanted to visit Finland to discover the education system because I want to become a primary teacher. I am therefore in Turku for 6 months as a volunteer, thanks to Erasmus + (the program organizing volunteering in Europe for young people from 18 to 30 years old).

My main task is to give circus classes for children from 7 to 10 years old but also for parents accompanied by their baby from 1 to 3 years old. I also have the opportunity to share my native language by giving French classes.

Circus and Movie camps in June 2019

We have organised two Circus and Movie camps in June 2019. 

3-9.6.2019 in Tippsund -youth center, together with Valnetine. She shared her circus skills with other participants: children and youth. 

And 16-21.6.2019 in Ahtela -youth center. Valentine couldn't stay so long, so we tried to manage without her help. Some of teenagers could juggle and use diabolos, so they shared their skills with others. Anyway, the skills shared by Valentine we use now in every of our camp. 

So here you can see videos from our both camps.
