CEAS is located in northern Nice, in the Vallon des Fleurs neighbourhood. This area is home to a large number of families and individuals affected by vulnerability, isolation and socio-economic hardship. Young people in the area face a lack of sporting facilities and spaces for structured activities, leading to idleness and delinquency.
To tackle this problem, the Espace Famille department of CEAS plays a major role in promoting local community life and providing support to the young people outside of school hours. The organization involves locals in staging neighbourhood meals, open-air cinemas, music festivals and cultural outings.
