Mentoring Europe and the European mentoring community celebrate the publishing of a position paper on mentoring. It has the main objective of showing policy & decision-makers how the European mentoring field foresees the future development of mentoring in Europe and its impacts on civic society. This paper was presented at the European Parliament during the last mentoring event in Brussels. The advocacy committee of Mentoring Europe has been working around the clock during 2021 and 2022 to develop this paper.
The support and guidance of (young) people of different ages in Europe, and the sustainable development of professionals needs a broader approach, going beyond institutions, structures and sectors. Mentoring answers this need, being a personal, powerful and customized intervention.
Bearing this in mind, mentoring practitioners and researchers bring the following recommendations to EU authorities and to member states. In consequence, mentoring as an intervention can reach its full potential in the European and national context.
The position paper can be found here.
