ADICE, Association for the Development of Citizen and European Initiatives, is a non-profit association created in February 1999 in Roubaix, on a social and economic fragile territory. This area is characterized by a:
• particularly large part of immigrated population (more than 50%, in majority from North Africa)
• very high rate of unemployment and insertion difficulties, especially for young people with foreign origins
In this context ADICE’s aim is mainly to fight against discrimination and to favour the social promotion of young adults, mainly disadvantaged (unemployed, unqualified or low qualified, immigrated persons, women) by supporting their participation in European and French mobility programs (Erasmus +, EU Volunteers, Voluntery Civil Service with partners like State, region, etc..) in order to develop their social, professional and intercultural skills.
For us, mobility and international volunteerism represent an opportunity for those public to make an active commitment about citizenship, cultural diversity, non-formal education.
ADICE is also working on Chanel and 2 Seas INTERREG Programme, on project developing social innovation.
