Project objectives

  • setting up the framework of communication with youngsters – providing the on-line tool for recruiting resilient youngsters who can be volunteers. 
  • creating a set of activities that can be provided by peer mentors to mentees in such a way that common activities will develop and improve social resilience by learning and training soft skills and social competences.  
  • providing the know-how for educators on how to work with youngsters who can become peer mentors as volunteers 

Target groups

  • Despite the impression that the most important target group are young people at risk of depressive behavior, the authors of the project strongly emphasize that the main target group are teenagers. It is important to understand that the project is aimed at young people who, thanks to cooperation, are to realize the idea of inclusion through peer self-help. Therefore, the recipients are both young people exposed to depressive factors and those who, thanks to their social and mental resilience, can get involved in the prevention of depression among young people. The activation assumed by the project is to concern both groups of young people, both parties must cooperate and create, nurture, share and disseminate common values in order to achieve the project’s goals.  
  • The second group of recipients are educators: professionals from all institutions dealing with youth. The process of peer mentoring requires introduction and professional monitoring. However, it has to be participatory monitoring, not meddling. An additional, indirect group of recipients are all stakeholders: decision-makers of the educational process, school teachers, parents of adolescents. The implementation of the project will make it possible to understand communication processes and reach the generation particularly exposed to the dangerous factors of the modern world.

Added value

The project directly refers to what is very important in a world 

where a huge number of values from different cultures are mixed: it gives the opportunity to establish and strengthen relationships between people, starting with the young generation, which is particularly exposed to growing up in a sense of isolation and loneliness. The diversity of partners will allow for a wide application of the methodology and project results in many fields. Each of the partners will equally use the effects of joint effort for the benefit of the community that is Europe, working with the young generation on whom the future of the European Union will depend. 

Planned activities:

A conference will be held in each partner country to disseminate the project results.
