Whether measured by the scope of its action, by building a complementary team, or by revealing itself through warm professionalism, “making a difference,” as expressed by DUO for a JOB, is primarily within its very heart.
Through its mentoring program, DUO for a JOB encourages an exchange of experience between generations and cultures thus facilitating the future employment of young people while recognising the value of our elders’ experience .
DUO for a JOB aims at erasing disparities and inequality in access to the labour market for young people with immigrant backgrounds. DUO fully values the experience of our elders, breaks down age barriers, encourages inter-cultural and inter-generational activities. DUO combats stereotypes such as ageism and xenophobia, by recreating close social ties based on understanding and solidarity.
Whether it is a matter of language, training, origin, culinary tastes, ambitions or dreams, the DUO Team is a reflection of its values. Each in their own way, our staff accompanies their duos on a road to success.

Until 2017, our funds came mainly from foundations and private donations. In 2018, the first source of funding remained foundations however, the share of public funding has been steadily increasing since the project's inception to reach one-third of the budget in 2018. Private donors (mainly through large donations) still represent a significant proportion of our financial contributions. The rest is covered by the partnerships set up with companies. Because the association’s mission addresses questions of integration, social cohesion as well as equal opportunities, the financial independence of DUO for a JOB is crucial to both its sustainability and its advocacy powers. It is with this in mind that the association seeks continually to diversify its sources of income and why it is committed to complete openness and transparency with regard to the use of funding received as well as the efficiency of its activities.
