L'association MIJE, membre agréé par l'UNOSEL depuis 2011
Our history and values
In the 1950s, a group of teachers from the Sarcelles secondary school organised the very first schools trip to Greece. Because it was such a success and in order to provide more school trips, in 1958 they decided to create the MIJE : Maisons Internationales de la Jeunesse et des Etudiants, in the form of a non-profit association.
In 1960, the MIJE association became a partner of the UNESCO French federation of clubs for school trips. The MIJE project was recognised as an organisation of public interest in 1970.From 1969 to 1977, three derelict buildings slated for demolition in the Marais district were entrusted to the MIJE by Paris city hall for full rehabilitation.
Over time, the MIJE has progressed, now offering two distinct activities: school trips and youth hostel accommodation in three buildings in Paris, focusing on the values of Travel, Culture and Citizenship in order to :
> offer educational trips to young French people and those from abroad, to discover social, economic and cultural realities,
> improve access to youth hostels in the centre of Paris, allowing everyone to discover the history of the capital city and its cultural heritage at reasonable prices..
