Mentoring for children and teenagers

Give a child your hand – a program for children and teenagers from migrant families

Children from families, who seek advice at FIM, face special challenges. They need people who encourage them, open doors or just listen and spend some time with them. They need people, that “take them by the hand”, so that they can develop their individual skills, even under difficult circumstances. The program “Give a child your hand” helps disadvantaged children and teenagers from migrant families to find their own way inside the German society and to benefit from educational and participation opportunities, which they would probably not recognise otherwise. The special feature of the mentoring project at FIM is that it connects different approaches: firstly the individual support of children and teenagers by volunteer mentors and secondly the assistance for the parents regarding parenting and fostering their children through counselling and parents’ or mothers’ groups.

The mentoring program at FIM…

• Promotes the development of skills through informal learning,

• Bridges the gap between people with different cultural and social backgrounds, who would normally not meet each other,

• Helps through a holistic approach to integrate the whole family of the mentored child in taking a part in the German society and to receive support during the integration process.
