Take advantage of a gap year to try an international experience in an NGO

  • International work experience

The Initiation programs represent a first professional experience abroad. In concrete terms, it is a practical experience to acquire transversal skills, within the framework of a gap year for example, which will be useful in your current or future profession. The minimum duration proposed is two months to complete a project, and generally includes a first part of 4 weeks of English or Spanish courses depending on the region of the world.

The experience takes place internationally, which is all the more enriching and attractive for your professional career. It is a guarantee of mobility and autonomy, which explains the growing demand for international experience, otherwise known as internationalism.
