  • The next application period for mentees is from 1.8-15.9.2018 sign up HERE

FIKA är ett mentorprogram där frivilliga ställer upp som mentorer för att underlätta invandrares integrationsprocess.

En person som behöver stöd i sin integrationsprocess paras ihop med en mentor som känner sig etablerad i det finländska samhället. Tillsammans bekantar sig mentorparet till exempel med arbetsmarknaden, språket, närsamhället och delar med sig av sina erfarenheter. Paret träffas i sex månader, cirka 4-8 timmar per månad.
