Peer Training for Youth with Refugee Background
In four months of workshops and courses, young people with refugee background are trained as Peer-Mentors. They learn about project management, topics of human rights, health, living-together, housing, the job market and many more. The training enables them to become active as multipliers within their peer group.
The project is part of the project CORE – Integration im Zentrum. This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative. With the project, Vienna is creating space for innovative approaches in order to make life and settling in the city easier for refugees from the first day onwards.
