In Between Occupational Work & Volunteer Work: Serving as a Teacher in France & in the U.S.
Community and National Service
This Civic Service Research Fellows study compared two youth service programs in the U.S., City Year and Teach for America, with two in France, Unis Cite and AFEV. Using in-depth interviews, we explore servers’ perceptions of the boundaries between volunteer work , service work and professional/occupational work. The study also assessed the role of an education-focused program in shaping a professional career in education.
