Tandem Now - InnsbruckFrom the 19th to the 21st  was held on Innsbruck The Kick-off meeting of Tandem Now project.

The project aims to create role models for migrant youth or youth from ethnic minorities throughout of the vocational career, using experience and results of the initial project Tandem.

It wants to contribute to the effective training of mentors by understanding the needs of young people and local contexts and to develop “blended mentoring” (a mix of face-to-face and online activities).

Young people belonging to ethnic minorities often have no role models who can lead them to a future career, to get in touch with people who succeed professionally despite their migratory background would be for them encouraging and  constructive.

Tandem Now is a Leonardo Da Vinci transfer of Innovation  under the Lifelong Learning Programme, It will contribute with best practise examples the training of mentors adapting to the needs of the young people and into each local contexts

After a needs analysis to understand young people’s needs and how mentors can respond to them and a  Research of mentoring concepts in each country will be created a Curriculum on Blended Mentoring.

The Curriculum and the Blended Mentoring will be tested.

CIVILHOOD addressed the autonomy of young migrants, emphasizing the complexity of their experiences and the need for flexible approaches. Challenges include the difficulty in defining autonomy and the impact of the dynamics of reception on their growth and integration. The CIVILHOOD project has developed educational resources to support practitioners and volunteers in addressing these challenges.
