DUO for a JOB organises intergenerational and intercultural mentoring to facilitate access to the job market for the youngest jobseekers while recognizing the value of the over 50 experience.
Practically this means a relationship where an experienced person, “the mentor”, shares their knowledge and expertise with a young person, “the mentee”, in order to allow them to develop their skills and autonomy, and to enable them to identify and achieve professional objectives. This relationship (“the duo”) is based on exchanging, learning and permanent and reciprocal trust.
Once paired, the young person and his or her mentor meet for two hours a week for six months. After launching 3500+ duos in 7 cities (such as Brussels, Antwerp,Paris,… ) they are ready and willing to contribute to inclusivity in Rotterdam.
