Intercultural Mentoring Program

Intercultural Mentoring Program is an innovate 5-day training course for teachers and educators interested in reducing early school leaving, in improving students learning with a migrant background, in promoting gender equality by using inclusive approaches in a multicultural educational context.The Intercultural Mentoring Program model has been designed by Oxfam Italia thanks to long experiences on the educational field within Italian secondary schools.

The model has been tested in different cities (Milan, Turin, Bologna, Arezzo) and in the last years it has been evaluated and has improved in the frame of an European project called INTO – Intercultural mentoring tools to support migrant integration at school -Comenius multilateral project 2012-14.

From these experiences, the training offers an opportunity to reinforce teachers and educators intercultural skills by identifying, training, supervising and evaluating – within our schools or organization – a group of mentor students who are meant to guide and support other students at risk of exclusion, with difficulties at school or during their integration phase at school.
