The current socio-economic situation that Europe, and mainly Portugal, live has changed the market conditions, enlarging the offer, on the one hand, but on the other hand, turning it more complex and demanding. The difficulties increase for those to whom affected by interiority (like in Vila Verde, Minho where the school is) and lack of opportunities and, therefore, is school’s duty to decrease this disadvantage. Thus, the importance of this mobility project, so that our young may have the same experiences and acculturation, enabling them to face this European Market with success, to strengthen employability access and to improve their personal development through competences’ acquiring (knowledge, skills and attitudes, including cultural and language diversity) enabled by this project.
