Recruiting refugee to a mentoring program

Our first gathering in Stavanger was to recruit refugees and mentors for Mentor-LELO´s first mentoring program in Stavanger. We have offices in the innovation park and we where 22 people interested. at this first gathering the main focus is to get to known the people, the people should have a positive attitude too us and that they know what a mentoring program is. We had some training within some personality analysis, we use it to get to know them and to match mentee and mentor.

In addition Latifa Anda, my partner in Mentor-LELO her story, she is a refugee herself, and Shabana Rehman Gaarder told about Born Free initiative and why they wanted to be collaborator with us. And I was talking about being in a mentoring program and the schedule for this program.

A new mentoring company

For a long time now me and my partner have been working with a new business idea. We would like to start a mentoring company which is making mentoring programs to refugees to Norway. We want to help them into the Norwegian society and building a strong network here and maybe also getting jobs.

A changing world creates new situations with changing conditions and opportunities. The challenges for everyone both in personal life or in the workplace are large and increasingly complex. The Mentor-LELO Mentor program provides a structured framework tool for bringing reflective and evolving conversations.

Our vision is inclusion, equality and self-realization. Achieving higher inclusion of immigrants in the labor market will have a positive impact on the sense of social belonging, promoting inclusion and strengthening integration. On the other hand, all immigrants must have the opportunity to exploit their resources.

Stay tuned…
