Green light for the inclusion and international youth mobility project within ESI partner regions

Published the 17 November 2016

On 26 October 2016, Mob’inclus project submitted by Pas-de-Calais County Council in September received a green light and financial support of 51,216 € from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project will also benefit from a financial support of the French agency for national volunteer service and the Erasmus + programme. The project aims to demonstrate, thanks to two complementary actions, that international youth mobility is an efficient tool for inclusion, adaptable to each youngster profile.

Youngsters from Pas-de-Calais in learning mobility to Lecce

The first action of the project is a 5-month training in hostelry and catering of a dozen of youngsters from Pas-de-Calais in 2017. For 10 weeks, on the Opal Coast (Pas-de-Calais), the youngsters will follow theoretical and practical training in the training center F2C, alternating with professional training in restaurants and prepared for mobility (language, culture, autonomy etc.). In April, they will leave in group for a professional training of 6 weeks in the restaurants of the Province of Lecce in partnership with the hostelry school Instituto Aldo Moro de Santa Cesarea Terme.

In parallel of the learning mobility of the youngsters, the project includes mobility of several professionals involved in youth, inclusion and training policies to enhance exchange of good practices. In the long term, the project might lead to the co-construction of a professional training in catering including French-Italian mobilities between Pas-de-Calais and the province of Lecce.

Pas-de-Calais County Council and the Province of Lecce are the two partners of the European Straits Initiative that will implement this action together with their local partners. Results of the project will be shared with all partners of the Initiative.

Ten international volunteer services to enhance youth involvement

A second action of the project is ten youngsters of Pas-de-Calais that will travel to partner territories of the European Straits Initiative: Vlora region (Albania), province of Reggio Calabria (Italy), region of Ionian islands (Greece) and the province of West Flanders (Belgium).

The youngsters will be identified and followed by the department in charge of insertion within Pas-de-Calais County Council, together with the hosting territories. They will be entrusted with missions of general interest in the fields of culture and leisure, the environment, memory and citizenship.
