DUO for a JOB matches young job seekers with an immigrant background with people over 50 who use their professional experience to accompany and support them in their job search. By organizing this ‘intergenerational and intercultural ‘ mentoring (coaching), DUO for a JOB wants to contribute to equal access to the job market for everyone.
As soon as the duo has been matched, the young mentee and his/her mentor meet for a minimum of two hours a week over a period of six months.
DUO for a JOB provides services to young job seekers and future mentors in Paris and in six cities in Belgium.
I find this project both promising and positive. I wanted to share my experience with others; that’s what I’m doing now with my mentee

DUO is just the programme I needed. It enabled me to go further in my search efforts towards employment. I gained experience. I regret that I did not hear about this programme much sooner but I am very proud of all I have learned from it
