In Story_S project, we target empowerment through mentoring, a peer to peer relational tool, which provides for participation and involvement of mentors and mentees in an exchange of mutual knowledge and on most decisions regarding their activities in the project, while aiming to increase their possibility to make decisions regarding their own educational paths and their realities as a whole.

The aim of the mentorship goes beyond the mere educational and academic support, fostering a more global empowerment, that is able to increase personal capabilities such as: self-consciousness, self-actualisation, self-advocacy, and transversal competencies.

Through individual mentorship meetings between mentor and mentees, group activities and the expertise of researchers and facilitators, we encourage successful growing processes, in which the development of professional and/or educational skills intersects social and personal competencies, in an “ecological” way.

Every partner country (Italy, Romania, Spain and Bulgaria) identifies a group of 12 mentors and 24 young Roma who need support in developing their personal, educational and/or professional path that will take part in peer-to-peer mentoring, from May 2018 to October 2019.
