Mentoring helps to build bridges between people from different living environments, encourages younger people in their development and supports immigrants to settle into their new setting.
We explored the inner workings of mentoring and met fellow participants that enriched our skills and understanding of various different approaches to the world of mentoring. The summit included world-renowned speakers, workshops with creative experts, different sessions to exchange knowledge and tools, a special networking-dinner as well as a cultural and social programme.
Therefore, the summit addressed these three main topics:
Improving quality for stronger mentoring relationships,
The impact of mentoring on society,
Mentoring with migrants and refugees.
All in all, the summit was a success. Thank you for your participation and for making it so special and rich!
