A Coruña, middle-sized town (250,000 inhabitants) at the NW of Spain. Communications: there is an airport (national and international), 10 km away but also another 60 kms. away, in Santiago de Compostela (holy city, end of the Jacob’s Way) and capital of the Autonomous Community of Galicia. A Coruña is the most dynamic city of Galicia. It is a well developed financial city, and economic heart of Galicia. In it we can find the Tower of Hercules, only active Roman lighthouse in the world, recently chosen as Human Heritage by the UNESCO.

The Cultural Association InGalicia was officially founded in 2007 to favour the Community spirit and integration and promote awareness about the European culture among youth. Thus, we present the organization as a tool to help and support professional traineeships, learning of foreign languages and improvement of the Euro pean working sistem. Ingalicia has an experience of many years in the International mobility sector as hosting/sending organization for the Leonardo Da Vinci, Erasmus Placement, Gruntvig and Youth in Action programs; we work as intermediary between European Union and the concern where the grantholder does his training. We are also an EURODESK local partner. Our main activities include also the organization of visits and meetings, European planning for public entities regarding youth, sport, local economic development, culture and cooperation with developing countries. We believe that a transnational experience could offer young people the opportunity to grow within a European dimension through their personal and professional skills, so they could be the main characters of the European future.
