I hadn’t met a single person like him in Belgium. We’ve really built a relationship of trust. And needless to say, I will continue to meet with him once I actually start working.” says Khalid, once again hopeful. Jean-Louis concludes, visibly touched, that he has “already received so much in return from his mentee.

It may just be a tiny little drop in the ocean, but I feel like mentoring my four duos has left its mark. ” says Joëlle. ” Three of the four mentees I helped have found a job. We are still in touch. It’s really satisfying as a mentor to know that you can make a difference.

Be between 18 and 33 years old
Be of non-European nationality OR have a parent or a grandparent born outside the EU
Have a valid Belgian residence permit (except student visas or orange cards)
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.
