Ligue de l'enseignement Centre-Val de Loire

La Ligue de l’enseignement is one of France’s largest organisations in non-formal education. Based in the Loire Valley, our regional federation gathers 1,687 associations in 6 local federations with the common aims of training responsible citizens, fighting against all inequalities and building a fairer and more independent society.

We work on connexions between “laïcité” (humanism) and diversity and our position defends a republican idea, based on equality of rights, facing transformation of French society into a multicultural society.

As a complementary actor to school, we work in favour of reducing inequalities and school competition by enabling access to non-formal and informal education for everyone. We cooperate with local authorities to assess and redirect public policies and projects in the field of education (actions for school dropouts, adult education centres, 2nd chance schools, recreational centres, etc.).

We accompany youngsters from childhood to young adulthood. We support youth initiatives through trainings for youth facilitators and youngsters, in order to promote their active citizenship.

We promote the principle of equal opportunities through financial support by local authorities. We offert certifying courses for youth leaders and workers. We also offer school trips, summer camps, family trips and language course holidays.

We believe culture is not only limited to arts and heritage but enables us to understand the world. Cultural education and youth policies should be consistent and each of them should be led democratically, by involving citizens. Four priorities lead its work: reinforcing artistic education, diversity, participation and lifelong learning.

We commit to implement civic activities about environment and sustainable development. We favour community education to involve citizens.

Social welfare aims at enabling vulnerable, excluded people or those facing integration challenges to be part of society. We manage social rehabilitation and medico-social institutions dedicated to welcome them outside public institutions. We act daily to develop innovating and singular practices, promoting social cohesion, active citizenship for all and preventing exclusion.
