international cooperation and exchanges

think global, act local!

Through cooperation activities in Italy and abroad, we want to support inclusive development and growth in local communities starting with young people.

The cooperation implemented by AICEM is based on the active involvement of the communities we work with through a non-formal approach. A practical approach that, through ‘learning by doing’, puts the person at the centre of the dialogue and exchange process.

The aim is to include in the processes of change and cooperation both local authorities, institutions and stakeholders operating in the territories, but above all the people, in order to always be sure that every action goes in the direction of sustainable development in the measure of the dignity and respect of every human being.

We operate in Italy, Europe, the Mediterranean countries, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.

know others to know yourself

We strongly believe that dialogue and intercultural exchange are the core values to offer the new generations

All this with the aim of guaranteeing education and growth while respecting diversity and the added value it brings.

This is why we promote and organise international exchanges, short and long-term volunteer mobility for young people by hosting girls and boys in our locations and sending young volunteers abroad to our partners.

The international mobility opportunities we promote directly or through our partners are:

International Youth Exchanges

From 5 to 15 days, in Italy and abroad, where young people under 30 years of age can meet, get to know each other and discuss their cultural differences and/or similarities with peers and strengthen together the feeling of being active citizens.

European Solidarity Corps

We carry out projects to send/host young people under 30 years of age to volunteer abroad and make a contribution to development, for an active and inclusive Europe.

Internships and apprenticeships abroad

We realise projects to send or host internship and apprenticeship projects through national and international programmes such as Erasmus+, Back to Lazio immediately, European Solidarity Corps, etc.
