SymfoS: Concept note

Printed Material (Handbook)

The methodologies for a Peer Buddy system developed within the SymfoS project is aiming to utilize the strong support that can be gained within a peer relationship to strengthen the link to employment and training pathways for young people. Peers provide links to other networks and community supports that professionals will not always have access to. This type of informal networking can supplement the traditional professional guidance services that young people access, creating an increasingly holistic approach to professional networking. This manual describes the basic methodology for implementing the peer support system focused on the SymfoS methodology and collects the experiences of implementation of the method within the project partner organisations.
