Mentoring as an integral component of European development
Mentoring has been a part of the development of European civil society for more than 20 years. In the past decade, more and more mentoring programmes emerge. Why? As practice and evidence show, mentoring is a unique instrument that can be connected to a diversity of European, national and regional challenges and priorities. It works – under the right conditions – for different topics, target groups, goals and organisations. Mentoring empowers people and focuses on the individual goals of participants. By applying mentoring, we connect people, generations, different social backgrounds and ethnic groups, contributing to the integration of migrants, a better educational level of young people and an inclusive and entrepreneurial / innovative society.
