Projets / Cooperation Partnerships / MENTOR

Cooperation Partnerships

The aim of the MENTOR project is to strengthen the capacity of youth organisations by providing them with tools to facilitate the implementation of mentoring activities within their own activities.

Given the growth of mentoring in Europe and the fact that mobility projects are seen as a real opportunity for non-formal education, it is important to assess the impact of mentoring on participants in international mobility.


The specific objectives of the project are :

  • Highlight existing needs and expectations in terms of mentoring in the youth sector.
  • Create an pedagogical tool for youth organisations/professionals to implement mentoring activities in their own organisation.
  • Develop a training course to train and engage future mentors.
  • Enable mentors and mentees to track the progress of their pairings.


In this context, the MENTOR project partnership aims to produce 4 outputs over the 26 months of the project, as follows:

  • A transnational study of mentoring needs in the project’s partner countries. This study will help to identify existing needs in the youth field.
  • A guide for youth professionals to help them set up mentoring activities in their own organisations.
  • A training for future mentors. Mentors, whether former international mobility participants or people who have already lived abroad for at least 3 months, are trained in their role as mentors to provide the right support for mentees (future international mobility participants).
  • A portfolio for mentors and mentees, enabling them to track the progress of their pairing using an interactive tool throughout their mentoring relationship.

Public and beneficiaries

The project is aimed at several target audiences, including youth sector professionals, former and future international mobility participants and anyone wishing to engage in a mentoring relationship with future participants.

Professionals in the youth sector will be given the tools they need to implement mentoring activities within their own organisations and thus provide better support for their international mobility participants.

Future mobility participants, who will benefit from better support throughout their mobility project through mentoring. They are therefore considered mentees.

Former international mobility participants and/or anyone who has already spent at least 3 months abroad and would like to get involved as a mentor to support future participants. Mentors receive training and tools to equip them for their role as mentor.
