Effective integration policies building around active citizenship are needed since they are conducive to efficient, sustainable, responsible and inclusive social models. Tailor made responses to support the integration of the youngest generations are an essential investment to guarantee long term successful results and durable solutions. The present action aims at improving the support to young third-country nationals aged 18-21 by strengthening the presence of volunteer citizens (individual or groups) that accompany them in their integration process through mentoring programmes. The implementation of mentoring models will have direct impact on the young third-country nationals’ lives in relation to these key dimensions and policy areas: employment, education, social inclusion and active citizenship.
