Because our participants are young people with fewer opportunities, it means that most of them for various reasons have the need to feel extra secure about their ESC . The need for extra support and accompany could be due to reasons of social, physical, economic, psychological, health related or geographical issues. Some of them have not had the opportunity to go abroad before and/or not at least on their own. We want to be able to support our youth by preparing both him/she and the hosting organisation for an ESC as meaningful as possible. Therefore will contact person/ mentor travel together with the participant to the hosting organisation
