ADICE – Association pour le développement des initiatives citoyennes et européennes, France / Association for the Development of European and Civic Initiatives (leader of WP4: Dissemination)

 

Since its creation in 1999, ADICE has grown. Since the beginning, ADICE has been fighting against discrimination and promoting people with fewer opportunities (youth, job seekers and people with migrant background) at the social and professional level. Their work is to provide opportunities to these persons for  enhancive experience which would reinforce and enrich their personal and professional development. The aim is to coach them in their projects' definitions, to identify the competences they want to develop, to facilitate their access to the employment market and to encourage their participation in democratic projects. ADICE talks about “promotion”, which means starting from the individual to implement an adapted project, in contrast with “integration” which implies that the individual has to adapt to the project.

ADICE considers international mobility as a way to integrate, mix and promote people, enabling them to develop social (open-mindedness, autonomy, critical thinking, solidarity, self-confidence), professional (teamwork, technical and linguistic competences) and intercultural competences (the discovery of a new country, a new environment, tolerance, overcoming stereotypes). It is a way of breaking from one’s daily environment, of encouraging autonomy, of giving a sense of responsibility but mostly of identifying, reinforcing and building skills.
