The project “Road to Adulthood – Mentorship Helping Migrant and Refugee Unaccompanied Minors Navigate Adulthood” is an European project aiming at supporting unaccompanied children and young people (former UAMs) in their transition towards adulthood and integration. It also aims at increasing the exchange of shared training models for mentoring of unaccompanied minors and young adults suitable to be applied at European level by successfully exchanging and promoting existing and improved methodology to support the transition of UAMs to adulthood.
The project is based on mentoring methodology for the preparation of migrant and refugee unaccompanied children to integrate in the local community through the development of mentorship relationships that support their transition to adulthood.
