ALBANE d'HARCOURT

Philippines Coordinator, 2022

"LP4Y is the most beautiful experience I ran into.


Seeing the evolution of the Youth, from the first day to the last one, gives me so much confidence on how much they will bring to the world, and how unique they are. Being a witness of them reaching their goals, this is what LP4Y offers me.


LP4Y, it’s also the amount of emotions you live and how alive you can feel. Why do I feel so much alive? Because I am a Catalyst. I am Catalyst of Change, and I love it. I love to impulse actions, to convince, to create links between actors to finally build the bridge between different worlds and make everyone realize that there is no future without inclusion. Because being a Catalyst gave me so many opportunities to have a big smile on my face and the will to dance!
Believe me, you will love it! Join us to become a Catalyst"

MANISHA CHAPAGAIN

Coach of Green Village Kathmandu, Nepal, 2022

” In a nutshell, my LP4Y journey all started with Batch 13. And witnessing their improvement and growth has immensely helped me in understanding how people may acquire and master their personalities when they are hungry and enthusiastic to overcome their flaws. Not only have the Youth evolved in the previous three months, but I have as well, I evolved, I fostered. This reciprocal link between Youth and catalysts tells me that by working together, we may overcome our pitfalls, weaknesses and flaws.”

Coach of Yummy program, India, 2017  - 

Coach of Deco Me program, Philippines, 2018 - Leader of Green Village Mekong, Vietnam, 2019 - Green Village Coordinator, 2020 - 2022

“My contact with the Youth has taught me to trust, to have faith in myself and to be firm while retaining the ability to reexamine myself. When you’re a coach you have to make 15 decisions a minute, support the Youth in their Life Projects, give them confidence, and room to develop … This year strengthened my belief that challenges, caring and humor are the keys to a positive pedagogy. This experience has given me the strength to continue coaching, this time in the Philippines. I see this mission as a new challenge: getting to know new Young Adults, learning to work together in a new environment with new cultural codes, and above all, succeeding once more in developing a coaching system that combines high standards, appreciation of the Youth and team spirit!

LILAS VERRON

Coach - Project Leader Pedagogical Development & Coaching, India, 2018 & Myanmar, 2019

"For the first 6 months, I was coaching a team of 17 Youth  in one of the LP4Y centers in Delhi, India. I worked with them on their life project, and accompanied them on their path to professional integration. The coaching mission requires a lot of organization because it is very versatile. Our missions consist in coaching the young people individually and in teams, giving trainings (English, IT, professional communication), developing partnerships, helping the young people to manage a micro-business and of course managing the budget of the program. This mission is very rich on the human level, and we see daily the impact of his commitment which is really motivating. For the next 6 months I was entrusted with the mission of Project Leader Partnerships and Pedagogy, to accompany the coaches on these two subjects. Training the coaches, creating tools, taking a step back to find ways to improve... This mission within the coordination team allowed me to have an overall vision of LP4Y's action."

LUCIE TAURINES

Coach - Partnership Leader - Coordinator Philippines 

Today, vice-presidente of LP4Y Paris

“When I arrived in the Philippines for my LP4Y mission, 3½ years ago, I knew nothing about poverty, the poverty that exists in certain countries affecting certain populations, and I knew nothing about the lives of the Young Adults, the same age as me, living the other side of the world … 

And I met Young Adults who had nothing, who lived in conditions we can’t even imagine and yet, who had hearts filled with a joy we cannot begin to understand. I was looking for meaning, and they were looking to meet their most basic needs: shelter, food for one day, clothing … 

I was brought face to face with my own barriers, my own limits. Life on a mission is extraordinary, because when you live and work with the Youth, the barriers within you come crashing down, and your outlook on the world changes. You undergo a transformation in the way you approach the world and life itself. 

I – Immersion in a new world and discovering poverty. On my mission I learnt about poverty and all its contradictions: The reality of the hunger that nags at the guts of the Youth, who can’t make it through the day because they’ve just had one meagre meal that day; the lack of health coverage and the exorbitant medical expenses that can plunge a family into debt for generations, condemning them to abject poverty; the appalling conditions in the slums, and the Filipinos whose reaction is to laugh and say “It’s raining in my house; the violence of the typhoons that in 2 hours can destroy the basic dwellings; the reality of prostitution, just to pay an electricity bill; the sexual abuse suffered by young children that barely raises an eyebrow in the slums; the drugs to help forget life’s hardships. 

2 – An LP4Y volunteer. What I learnt: I learnt to make mistakes and I learnt what it means to work on a development project. I learnt to meet new people without prejudging, without preconceived expectations. 

I learnt that giving and helping doesn’t work. 
I learnt what it meant to support / guide / share with the Youth, and the incalculable value of listening and sharing when it comes to LP4Y’s pedagogy. 
I learnt to live and work with it, plunging deep into another culture. 
I learnt to live the simple life, and to appreciate the freedom that gives! 
I learnt to submerge myself, living and loving a country and a culture which won me over with its powerful and honest outlook on life. 
I learnt smiling from the Filipinos, along with taking joy in simple moments, resilience, hospitality, generosity, joie de vivre. 
I leant from my mistakes, I learnt patience and humility. 
I learnt that being a volunteer is not about being a super hero, claiming to know everything, solving all problems as a Westerner might see it, instead it’s about giving the best of oneself, even when you can’t see the results, hoping that the Youth will, in turn, give the best of themselves, defying the odds which seemed to destine them for hell. 
I learnt the importance of teamwork and living in community with the other volunteers, I got to meet extraordinary people, with huge hearts who astonished me with their caring, their generosity, their passions and their love for others. 
When you go on a mission you are agreeing to let yourself be transformed, touched by the missions, by a country’s culture, by the contact with others. Above all, 
I learnt to open myself to others and to the Youth. To consider them as adults, as equals, and that was the key to everything …”
