Training Course for ESC mentors

Training Course

30 November - 15 December 2023 | Online, France

Mentorship is one of the key element to ensure meaningful ESC projects for volunteers. Over the years, the French Erasmus+ National Agency has built a strong expertise in training mentors nationally and wishes now to expand it.

This online training course is meant firstly for mentors with little experience or future mentors without any previous experience in mentoring in ESC. This TC is accessible for all programme and partner countries’ mentors, although SALTO EuroMed wishes to train south-med actors in priority. 

The training course will consist of 4 online sessions in November & December:

  • November, 30th
  • December, 1st
  • December, 14th
  • December, 15th

These 4 sessions are interdependent and must be taken as a whole training course; therefore, full attendance of all sessions is expected.

The objectives of the training course are the following:

  • Present the “European Solidarity Corps” programme;
  • Highlight the dimensions of solidarity and impact on society specific to the ESC programme;
  • Identify expectations of ESC Mentors: question the position and share good practices of mentorship;
  • Integrate the intercultural dimension, anticipate and manage the cultural shock caused by international mobility;
  • Support the management of difficulties linked to hosting and supporting volunteers;
  • Support the valorisation & recognition of learning & volunteers’ projects.

You are a mentor if:

  • You are the preferred contact/referent for volunteers hosted in your organisation;
  • You are involved in monitoring and supporting volunteers on different levels (intercultural preparation, daily life, administrative support, (re)integration, personal project, etc.);
  • You are in charge of valorisation & evaluation of learning outcomes of volunteers. 

If you fit this profile, this training course is meant for you if you are a member of an organisation holding a valid Quality Label for volunteering activities in the framework of the ESC programme and:

  • You have no or little experience as mentor in ESC or
  • You are an experienced mentor in ESC wishing to question your position.
