The YOU4MI toolbox gives the opportunity to support the development of a network between locals and newcomers: young people getting to know themselves, each other, and the country they live in in a peer-to-peer-approach. Have a look!

Aims of the tool

The aim of this project is the integration of young migrants in Europe, following the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Due to the crises that many young people live in their countries of origin (economic, wars, political conflicts, etc.), many of them are looking for a way out to start a better life. With the project we want to facilitate the way for these newcomers to a country, so that they can be helped by the locals, thus supporting a peer-to-peer methodology. The facilitator will bring together a number of young migrants, p.e. refugees, and a number of local young people so that they can train them in different subjects, and so that they can enrich each other.

Description of the tool

Building a group amongst the main target groups is fundamental for the creation of a training programme for young migrants to be disseminated to different refugees centres and organisations in order to attract their attention and their willingness to get to know and collaborate with local youngsters.

The innovative perspective is to educate and train young people from the majority for intercultural encounters with minority youth as peers and thus to actively participate in a process of mutual integration as peers in a common learning process.

The peer-to-peer programme to facilitate the networking between the two groups is the main goal of this toolbox.
A common network is to be created between all participants, making it easier for them to connect with each other thanks to the practical activities they choose to carry out together.
