Young people along the Via Francigena: ERASMUS + Mobility Card

Having won twice the ERASMUS + calls for mobility of youth in 2019 and 2020, the European Association of the Via Francigena ways provided an opportunity to 170 graduates in tourism, market and communication, to obtain vocation training abroad.

The young people, having participated in the project, are residents of Italian towns and villages situated along the Via Francigena, travelled to Spain, France and England, to receive their first international working experience.

Thanks to these project, the EAVF was granted the Vocational Education and Training (VET) ERASMUS + Mobility Card. This card allows to receive annual and continuous funding for the next 7 years of the ERASMUS + programme on axis K01 in the field of Vocational Education and Training (VET).

The EAVF, carrier network of the Via Francigena cultural routes, certified by the Council of Europe in 1994, is deeply engaged in work with youth, in conformity with the organisation’s requirements. Supporting cultural and educational exchanges for young Europeans is one of the EAVF key values, as organising activities with youth promotes the Via Francigena and sustainable tourism all over Europe, transmitting its values to the future generations.

Thanks to the VET card the EAVF will carry on its activities in the field of youth mobility and actively contribute to the European internationalization.
