Mentoring as a Pathway to Labour Market Integration: Evidence from a Belgian Programme
L Bagnoli, A Estache, M Fourati International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2022
In this paper, we provide evidence on mentoring as a way to ease the labour market integration of youth with a migration background. To do so, we designed a survey and collected information from mentees of a Belgian mentoring programme (DUO for a JOB). Our results show that the mentoring programme covers different topics. Some topics, such as gaining self-confidence, serve nearly all mentees, while the preference for other topics depends on specific mentee characteristics. Overall, every youth with a migration background can benefit from the mentoring programme, irrespective of their education or migration background.
