I decided to travel abroad because I needed to change, to live a new experience, to learn new things…"
The most iconic program of Parcours Le Monde IDF is “Osez l’international!” (“Dare to go international!”). Since 2016, this program’s goal is to develop the European and International mobility for young people who are the most distant from it, as a tool for professional and social inclusion, with an empowerment objective and access to work or the pursuit of a training program.
The general goal is to allow young people to rebuild, re-dynamize, or develop their project to foster their inclusion on the basics of an experience abroad (Job / Internship / Volunteering). For the young people who are the furthest away from it, the “set into motion” mode that comes with an International or European mobility, stimulate them to return to a procedure of personal, professional, and social integration, in a perspective of access to employment, pursuit of a traineeship and access to independence. Experiencing a temporary job, an internship, or a volunteer mission abroad, allows them to gain soft and hard skills, useful for their personal and professional growth.
Young people living in priority neighbourhoods, young people with integration difficulties, with less qualifications, or with social problematics, do not have access to the European mobility programs, and barely travel abroad independently. There is a real need to develop projects for this target group, who can benefit from the positive effects of such experiences and learn more in terms of integration, traineeship, independence, and self-confidence.

They often explain that there is a lack of information about international opportunities for young people, and that they need support to carry out their project.
Being supported reassured me.”
