DUO for a JOB’s impact is present on three levels: that of the young people we support, that of the mentors we train and that of the social connections we foster.
Thanks to the personalised support of their mentor, a majority of the young people have an easier access to the job market. But more importantly the mentoring, allows them to develop skills that will be useful throughout their lives: autonomy, self-confidence, knowledge of the resources and job search channels, etc.
Mentors find real satisfaction in developing new skills and in committing to a voluntary action of active citizenship. Being able to pass on their knowledge allows them to feel useful and to partake in an enriching human adventure.
And how many prejudices are invalidated?
Openness, trust, respect, generosity, tolerance, discovery of another culture… These are all values that bring our mentors and mentees together; and which they in turn can share so as to help the seeds of “living together” take root throughout Belgium!
