Learning by Mobility is a project that provides for mobility experiences in Spain for 12 eligible beneficiaries residing in Sicily, between the ages of 18 and 36 years old. The Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci is the project coordinator in partnership with the Spanish organization MUNDUS – Un mundo a tus pies. The project is aimed at socio-economically disadvantaged youths Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) who, for various reasons (school dropouts, family issues, lack of self-confidence or a clear vision of professional goals, etc.), are not currently engaged in work or training courses. Learning by Mobility will allow young people having fewer opportunities to get involved and experiment their potential while strengthening their relational and professional capabilities. Through the mobility experience the project aims to bolster participants’ interpersonal, professional and social skills. The project involves these youths in activities that can enrich their fund of work experience and promote their active participation in society. The young people are to collaborate with the host Spanish organizations and actively contribute to the realization of recreational and socio-cultural activities on a daily basis. Upon completion of their mobility experience each beneficiary will have received not only training, but also a personal work plan tailored to their specific profiles.
