Internships in Italy

Mistral has longstanding experience in the management of mobility projects in Brescia and, in 2016, we additionally launched our hosting activities in Lecco
We have hosted more than 600 young people coming from different European countries and every year we cooperate with more than 60 local hosting companies in order to find successful placements for our foreign participants
We organize activities for the knowledge of the local culture and territory such as guided tours, trips and certified language courses
We also offer a supporting and monitoring service for the whole mobility period, staying in regular contact with our participants for any problems or requests
Our staff have extensive experience and we can offer tailor-made services in order to satisfy any need.

  • ITALIAN LANGUAGE CLASSES: we organize language and intercultural courses of 20/40 hours, depending on the budget and on the length of the internship. The course can be organized in two levels (basic/medium – medium/high) depending on the participants’ knowledge of Italian. At the end of the language course we issue a certificate to each participant

The working hours are agreed between the trainee and the hosting company, but they will not exceed 8 hours per day/40 hours per week

We provide each participant with all the support he/she needs and we organize activities for the correct integration of the participant in the social contest
