Within the framework of the RESTART action plan coordinated by Pontibus ETT, “RE_BOOT: the development of a social service network for the elderly” aims to help persons over 50 years of age in the Lower Ipoly region to reintegrate into the workforce. The mentoring tasks will be carried out by the Szob District Family and Child Welfare Center. Co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, it aims to make reintegration into the labor market easier for those in the mentor program via skill development and the management different life situations that hinder reintegration in the interest of decreasing unemployment as well as labor shortages in the areas near the border, as both negative labor market phenomena are equally present in the region.
The mentoring program began in July of 2020, by reaching out to the affected target group with mentors utilizing their knowledge of the area as well as assistance from regional institutions to seek out persons over 50 years of age who have been excluded from the labor market, but wish to receive professional help toward reintegration.
During the course of the 210-hour mentor training organized by the Hungarian Maltese Charity Service, the mentors learned self-improvement and conflict management techniques, among other skills. They gained insight into the topic of addiction, basic vocational guidance, the application of different development tools, as well as the matters of mentoring methodology. This means that well-trained mentors with well-rounded knowledge will be providing those in need with assistance towards reintegration into the workforce.
If you belong to one of the above-mentioned target groups and are interested in the mentoring process, contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), letter, or personally at the following address:
Szob District Family and Child Welfare Center, 2628 Szob, Ipolysági utca 3.
