Grant Agreement Number: 2020-1-PL01-KA204-081815
Funded by: Erasmus+ Duration: 01/11/2020 – 30/04/2023
The number of migrants has been constantly increasing in recent years and this phenomenon poses new challenges to host societies all around Europe. This flow should become an opportunity for enrichment and not a threat to citizens of host countries, and this depends on the ability of EU countries to facilitate and coordinate smooth integration processes. The migrants need to develop the skillset to enhance their life in the host country. In most cases, training courses for migrants on local languages and vocational training are necessary.
However, migrants often struggle to capitalise on the benefits of the educational and training pathways they are involved in and thus find it difficult to understand their new socio-cultural environment.
The RISING Project aims at addressing the lack of motivation among migrants to participate in further education and training. To achieve its goal, RISING will implement a mentoring model focused on giving advice and orientation to migrants and improving their socio-emotional skills, such as their motivation, self-esteem and proactivity.
