This experience led to several job interviews. I met some wonderful people who invested so much in order to help us find work.
Arlette, Brussels, 27 years old
It’s exactly the mentor I wanted!
Lizhen, Brussels, 29 years old
Excellent experience with a lot of motivating exchanges.
Nazir, Brussels, 26 years old
Be between 18 and 33 years old
Have a parent or grandparent born outside the European Union
Have a valid residence permit in Belgium (no orange cards nor student visas)
Our mentoring programme is aimed at young people of foreign origin, i.e. all young people who have a foreign nationality from outside the European Union, but also all young people who are Belgian but who have a parent or grandparent who was born outside the EU.
Why is this? It is well acknowledged that having a foreign origin is a barrier to accessing the labour market, so our action aims to restore equal opportunities for all.
Having a mentor by your side really increases your chances on the job market. 7 out of 10 young people find a job, an internship or a training course thanks to their duo!
After attending an information session, you will meet with a coordinator from Duo for a Job who will take the time to assess your background, your expectations and your personality. Following this interview, you will be matched by Duo for a Job with the mentor who best suits you! Depending on your availability, you will meet your mentor for the first time and if you want to continue the adventure together, you will start your duo!
These steps usually take between 15 days and 1 month.
Think again! 25% of the young people we mentor have a higher education degree. In the job search, a degree is not everything. Your mentor can help you to better understand the codes of the sector, share his or her experience with you, help you build a network, etc.
Of course! Each duo starts with an inventory to be made together: who you are, what you like to do, what your skills are, what your priorities are, etc. All this information will allow you to better define the path you want to take.
No, you don’t need to have any qualifications or professional experience before starting your duo.
