The bank for a changing world

Odyssée Jeunes 2017 begins in Seine-Saint-Denis!

  • 18.09.2017

From 18 September to 20 October, the Odyssée Jeunes (Youth Odyssey) program is open for registration to middle schools in the Seine-Saint-Denis department!

Launched in partnership with the BNP Paribas Foundation, the Seine-Saint-Denis Departmental Council and the French Ministry of National Education's Directorate for Departmental Services, Odyssée Jeunes is a program dedicated to supporting educational trips organized by middle schools in the department.

Since 2009, "Odyssée Jeunes" has participated in 1,000 school trips that have allowed 40,000 pupils to acquire more extensive knowledge of a foreign language or the history of a country with their classmates.

Go where and study what?

Studying climate at the volcanoes in Auvergne, attending the Shakespeare Theater in London or discovering Berlin by following in the footsteps of World War II history: these examples illustrate the wealth of experience acquired through visits shared by pupils and their teachers. 

They are unforgettable experiences, far removed from daily life in the Seine-Saint-Denis department and opening a window on the world.

Some twenty eighth-grade pupils from the Jean Jaurès School in Pantin happily visited the Auvergne volcano range to study the climate. Springtime in the snow was undoubtedly the most outstanding event of the trip organized by their three dynamic teachers. Kamel, Floriane and Elodie teach, respectively, physics, life and earth sciences and English. - Credits: Sophie Loubaton
