The city of Frontignan has been running international mobility awareness projects for several years now to give a spirit of openness to its young people who suffer from living in the 1st region most affected by unemployment among young people under 25 years of age. The city wishes to welcome 2 young people who will be on a mission in its internal services, but also with its associative and educational partners. Their main objective will be to make our young people want to leave, through a taste for travel, encounters and intercultural exchanges. They will become true ambassadors for international mobility on our territory. They will be responsible for disseminating European action and developing educational actions that would be common between national education and non-formal activities through an original and attractive European dynamic.
