Immigrants are paired with a voluntary mentor according to similar backgrounds and interests (work, education, hobbies).The mentors, who are familiar with the Finnish way of life, meet up with their immigrant mentees for 4−8 hours a month over a six month period. The next application period for mentees is from 1.12.2018-15.1.2019 sign up HERE!
I FIKA paras en invandrare som behöver stöd i sin integrationsprocess 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.
