Mentohring Project

The goal of Mentohring project is to raise the employment opportunities of vulnerable, underprivileged third-country nationals - especially those under international protection - and to help them to find meaningful employment or to keep their current job. Part of this project is a communication campaign called "This is how we work" targeting the employers.  This project was supported by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).

As part of the Mentohring project, employers can chose from the following services:

  • recruitment of candidates, assistance in establishing contact
  • social and legal counselling, professional mentoring
  • a community to exchange professional experiences
  • an info brochure about employing third-country nationals

All the above services are provided by a team of qualified experts: professional social workers, legal counsellor, psychologist and intercultural mediator contribute to our work. The project is supported by volunteers.

Migrants who participate in the Mentohring project will be supported to apply for their desired jobs; to discover new opportunities and set professional goals.  Furthermore, through this project, migrants will be supported to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for their successful integration into the labour market in their host country.  Additionally, the following supports are offered to migrants to improve their mental health and well-being during this transition period in their lives:

  • social counselling and mentoring
  • legal counselling
  • mental health support in form of private sessions
  • alternative group therapy sessions
  • job hunter club
  • occupational group therapy
  • internship programmes to achieve work experience
  • tutoring and competence development in Hungarian
