Paths to Inclusion: Training for Community Mentors - Communication, Intercultural and Social Skills
These training modules have been developed under COMMIT: Facilitating the integration of resettled refugees in Croatia, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. The COMMIT project, running from January 2019 to April 2021 is funded by the European Commission through the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF). It is co-funded and implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in partnership with the Adecco Foundation for Equal Opportunities, Consorzio Communitas and the University for Foreigners of Siena (UNISTRASI) and co-funded by the Italian Ministry of Interior.
The COMMIT project seeks to facilitate the sustainable integration of resettled refugees in their new communities in Croatia, Italy, Portugal and Spain, with a specific focus on vulnerable groups such as women and young people. COMMIT is built on the recognition that welcoming conditions and enabling social dynamics are crucial to the integration and participation of refugees in the country of resettlement. The project aimed to enhance the support received by resettlement beneficiaries at different stages of the process – prior to departure, during transit and on arrival – including through the engagement of community mentors.
