An experienced mentor from the economy, politics, media or arts and culture accompanies the mentee over one year. They will share their professional knowledge and networks with the young people in order to support their career choice and to strengthen their social competences. In addition, the program involves joint activities like workshops, topical debates as well as cultural activities.
„Konnex – Mentors für young people with migration history“ is targeted at young people in Vienna and the surrounding area who participated in the finals of the Sag’s multi!“ competition. For the future, it is planned to expand the target group.
Mentors can have a migration background – or not. They are leadership personalities in the economy, public services or any other sector of interest for the young people. The mentors will support the young people through their professional networks and experiences.
The mentor/mentee pair will be selected according to the interest of the young person. The network of „Verein Wirtschaft für Integration“ will assist in finding the right people.
The role of EDUCULT
