The summer school holidays will start soon. Many of you are seeking courses or summer camps, an internship or a colony to keep your children and youth busy during the summer.
Every year, Solidarité européenne/R&D Luxembourg provides you with ideas to keep your kids busy during the long summer holidays.
Some centres also offer activities for all the family – a really nice way to spend some quality time together.
Also, Solidarité européenne/R&D Luxembourg is well aware of the situation facing our colleagues with lower salaries. We therefore offer financial help for these activities to our members with a net salary of less than 4000€ per month. Please contact the secretariat for full details.
