In November 2018, YouthLink was invited to design and conduct a workshop at the Allliance Francais venue, for a gathering of all the French Volunteers in India were part of the "Journee Du Volontarait Francais" event. We conducted the workshop based on the theme of community building - giving space for each volunteer to share their stories about what brought them to India and where they currently work. Exploring the different dimensions of volunteering and cross pollinating experiences and ideas was very energizing for us all. We also heard from several alumni speakers who came in to share their stories. The event conducted with an invitation for drinks and socializing at the French Consulate where the Ms. Catherine Suard, the Consule General of French in Pondicherry, gave the group an encouraging speech.
