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 is a phenomenon that poses new challenges to host societies all around Europe. This flow should become an opportunity for enrichment and not a threat to the citizens of the host countries and this depends on the ability of EU countries to facilitate and coordinate smooth integration processes. The migrants need to develop a set of skills in order to enhance their life in the host country. In most cases, providing training courses to migrants, by teaching local languages and offering vocational training is necessary.
However, migrants often struggle to capitalize the benefits of the educational and training pathways they are involved in and thus ultimately find it difficult to understand the new socio-cultural environment.
The RISING Project aims at addressing the lack of motivation among migrants in participating 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.
