InfoMobility means providing information, guidance and counselling during young people’s permanence in another country. Practically, the Youth on the Move - InfoMobility (YoMIM) Guides complement the services offered by youth information services by paying special regard to young people who take part in cross-border European mobility programmes. Through the guidance and information YoMIM Guides provide, young people can optimise their stay abroad and access valuable information. By getting engaged in the YoMIM service, youth information services can also increase and maximise their impact on the target community.

This training course can only be delivered by qualified trainers certified by ERYICA through a Training of Trainers course. For further information, please contact the ERYICA Secretariat.
