Our Partnership

Find out about our partnership, the consortium of organisations that have come together to write and create an excellent high quality product. Our partnership has been brought together by the Erasmus+ KA2 programme.


Our partnership

Since its creation in Roubaix in 1999, the “Association pour le Développement des Initiatives Citoyennes et Européennes” (ADICE) has been promoting equal opportunities by enabling those with fewer opportunities to experience living abroad, through various French and European mobility programmes. ADICE’s objective is to make mobility a tool, a means of improving the employability of young people. ADICE believes that mobility is an opportunity to learn and grow that will enrich participants’ values and resources and enable them to acquire useful skills for implementing their personal and career plans. From this standpoint, mobility is an advantage in accessing employment: independence, initiative, responsibility, a sense of organisation, open-mindedness, etc., these are all important general and multidisciplinary skills in employers’ eyes.
