MakeEurope, a project promoted by AgeMob, with the aim to promote the professional and personal growth of young people in the context of European international mobility. MakeEurope is a project with the awareness that Europe is an on-going process and people can / must actively participate in its construction.
The only man I know who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measurements anew each time he sees me. The rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them.

For a young person to go abroad to experience a different culture is an important decision that requires the best advice. For a school or an institution, organizing an experience abroad is a complex activity that must be planned and shared with a network of partners with proven experience and reliability. In both cases it is necessary to build a personalized path based on the real needs and training objectives previously identified. AgeMob, thanks to many years of experience, is able:
to INFORM and GUIDE
to INFORM and GUIDE
we provide information about mobility opportunities abroad available at local, regional and national level; we also provide assistance in compiling the grant application, preparation of CVs and we help those who intend, even individually, to have an experience of international mobility, through individual or private funding
we promote and communicate the results and good practices of the projects; we tell the best and the most exciting experience stories, we organize the experience sharing meetings and also the training meetings to develop mobility activities and to implement public policies in education, youth policy and international mobility
we do our best to guarantee the best conditions and preparation for an international mobility experience; we provide expert trainers and coaches who help participants enjoy their experience as much as possible and who can mentor them for the whole period; we provide tools for monitoring and self-evaluation; we help participants to develop their ‘soft’ skills
for students that decide to make their international experience in Arezzo, we identify the most suitable language course, we recommend and find accommodation solutions, contact companies for placement, support candidates and sending structures for the preparation of documentation
through our network of contacts abroad we can give the best opportunities and conditions for an international mobility experience. With our partners we constantly work together to monitor the experience and to verify the results; we organize workshops and on-site visits to be able to create training programs and projects based on the real needs of participants
we cooperate at the local, national and international level to ensure the reciprocity in the international mobility programs and the best return to the territories involved in terms of benefits, both for the hosting institutions/companies and for the participants themselves
The boys and girls who leave for an internship experience abroad are not brains on the run but in training. They are young people who want to be European citizens, aware of how important it is to enlarge their mental and relational boundaries in order to obtain a better position in the working world.
International mobility is already recognized as a social value for the creation of a more cohesive and inclusive Europe and for better and wider business, work and employment opportunities. Through the creation of the European labour market, competences increase and EU transparency and recognition tools for skills and qualifications are made more accessible.
We are particularly committed to schools, universities, associations and public bodies that recognize the social value of international exchange activities and we intend to support and develop them. This will ensure a positive spill over effect for organizations in their territory and benefit young people and students, apprentices and workers, entrepreneurs and freelance professionals.
