The ’Be my buddy’ project helps young people seeking support from other young people of their own age in the transition phase from school to working life.
Specific training for young coaches (’buddies’) is coordinated by several project partners, namely Arcus association, Luxembourg Red Cross, Young Caritas, LGS (Letzebuerger Guiden an Scouten), National Youth Service (Service national de la jeunesse- SNJ) and the University of Luxembourg.
After being introduced to the coaching role, young participants (’buddies’) meet their mentees during a matching session. Peers decide for themselves how and how often they want to meet and the themes they want to address. Supervision is guaranteed by professionals from partner institutions.
