We picture a Europe in which all young people have equal opportunities regardless of their nationality or legal status. We want the EU to be accessible to all young people and make its values more tangible.
For about 4 years, our organisation has been promoting, supporting and facilitating legal migration routes within EU member states for refugees with international protection status. This has been with the aim to better regulate intra-european migration.
We are the first and only grassroots and youth-lead initiative in Europe that connects young migrants with organisations and companies across european borders.
Within our moveurope! programme we use existing tools shaped by the current visa procedures. From experience we have seen the success from refugees applying for a visa for educational and vocational purposes (e.g. voluntary service and apprenticeship) in order to guarantee participation in opportunities outside the first country of asylum and thus make the mobility rights within EU member states much more tangible for all young adults. In this context, we provide empowerment oriented support in the form of advice, guidance and training, in order to share our knowledge.
How we work – Our moveurope! approach
Our work is aimed at different target groups and includes three main activities.
We provide ongoing advice
We offer individual consultancy on open migration pathways/ mobility opportunities for young migrants and refugees in Europe.
We match young refugees and migrants in Europe with companies or organisations that are looking for an apprenticeship, voluntary service or traineeship. We accompany both parties in all steps, from the preparation, implementation and after their stay.
We inform/give workshops
We offer regular training and workshops (online and offline) for different target groups and in different languages.
Have a look at our training calendar 2021 (coming soon).
Our consultations are:
- online and offline
- safe in terms of data protection
- for free
- for everybody
- requires your active participation
- equips you with the necessary knowledge and skills required to actively participate in all steps involved
- uses a case-by-case, holistic approach where your needs, interests and motivation are put first.
The knowledge and information we share is based on ongoing research we conduct together with our European partners. For two years we have been successfully accompanying refugees within Italy moving to Germany. Our aim is to explore more opportunities in EU countries to increase further accessibility.
