AGE participates in the EU-funded project ‘Mentoring Across Borders’ and invites organisations and people interested in mentoring to join the online info session of the project on 16 October at 14:00 CEST.
Mentoring Across Borders (MAB) aims to support the educational, professional and personal development of people by developing an intergenerational, cross-border mentoring programme. This programme involves older, experienced people (mentors, 50+) and younger mentees (18-30-year-olds) at risk of marginalization.
The project aims to develop mentoring hubs, which are organisations where older volunteers decide to put their skills at the service of younger people. Organisations can be:
Nine organisations are already acting as mentoring hubs in the Mentoring Across Borders project, among them the two AGE members 50plus Hellas (Greece) and Cyprus Third Age Observatory (Cyprus).
AGE will organise an information session on 16 October targeted at AGE members but open also to external organisations and older people that are interested in potentially becoming a mentoring hub or mentor. This session is targeted at people that have not yet participated in the first info session in July or the first Training Day in September.
If you are interested in learning more about the project, the mentoring methodology and activities, join our information session on 16 October at 14:00 (CEST).
For organisations that have expressed interest in becoming mentoring hubs, AGE will organise a training in December. The goal of the training will be to prepare interested organisations to assume the role of the mentoring hub and participate in the project pilot activities.
