Organization Objective

At HorizonCosmopolite, our mission is to bring together people of different cultures and to develop a lasting solidarity between them. Through our various internships and exchange programs, we promote the development of new attitudes, knowledge, and skills in order to encourage a society that is just, harmonious, and respectful of its environment. We believe that educational intercultural exchange programs equip participants with the tools necessary for change in today’s global world. The programs help participants to develop the skills needed to make a positive contribution to society. With its insightful perspective on today’s society, HorizonCosmopolite has been working since 1997 to create a generation of global citizens who will be equipped to face tomorrow’s challenges. We believe this is the first step toward building a united, more just and more humane world.By participating in an internship, an exchange, or studying abroad, you can begin to discover other cultures, learn new languages, acquire new skills, and gain work experience in a specific field.By participating in one of our programs, you will gain experience, broaden your horizons, and open doors to future opportunities!

At HorizonCosmopolite we offer international educational programs, creating opportunities to travel to other countries in hopes of allowing participants to experience realities that are different from our own. Since the beginning, we have sent over 3000 people to other countries.Our approach guarantees that we will prepare you as best we can for this experience. Our personalized service ensures that before your departure you will have a thorough understanding of the program’s objectives and the culture of you host country. We think it is important that our participants do not overly “disrupt” the everyday routine of the host communities. Thus, we expect participants to succesfully integrate themselves in the community and to live like the local population as much as possible. When taking part in a program abroad, one needs to be aware that every action has an impact. We have to minimize that consequences.If, on the other hand, you have specific skills and would like to put them to use, it is possible to develop a personalized program catered to your abilities.
