OSE 2018 General Assembly: a Focus on Youth Engagement


The OSE Annual General Assembly Meeting was held on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at the Georges and Lili Garel Center, headquarters of the OSE.

 This year’s General Assembly enabled OSE to highlight the commitment of the youth, through the civic service in France and Israel, and also the volunteering activities led by J’OSE young adult group members with the children and families in need supported by the OSE.

Yannick Blanc President of the National Civic Service Agency, presented the stakes of youth engagement, which is expressed today mainly through civic service and volunteering, because, as he states it: “the motivation of young people is already strong and needs to be even more encouraged.” As an illustration, the OSE civic service program in Israel was presented by Secretary General, Esther Rozenkier.

Another focus that illustrates the desire for youth engagement: J’OSE activities besides and inside OSE services.

The 2017 moral report by President Jean-François Guthmann and Director General of OSE Patricia Sitruk presented the main achievements of the year, which were numerous and enriching, with a focus on the events that marked the year in each of the OSE fields of work.
