Organisation Description

WakeUp Projects was created on the base of many years of experience in managing Erasmus+ projects and a wide and trusted network of contacts with entrepreneurs, schools and public institutions in the heart of Algarve (Faro).

We specialize in managing international mobilities of students and teachers (KA121, KA122, VET and SCH) putting an emphasis on innovation, promoting ecological solutions and digitization.

What distinguishes us on the market is full flexibility and individual approach to our clients and their needs. Our priority is to create a comprehensive professional and cultural experience that will help trainees broaden their horizons, gain self-confidence and skills that will allow them to stand out on the labour market.

We want to wake up young people’s curiosity, openness to the new, and a willingness to overcome barriers and face the challenges of the modern world.

To create comfortable conditions for trainees, our team consists of young and multilingual coordinators (including English, Polish, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian).

At WakeUp Projects, we focus on relationships and believe that together we can build a better tomorrow.
