REWIP is an EU-funded project aiming at supporting young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers (aged 18 – 30) that arrive in a new country of residence in the EU and wish to make their first steps towards achieving work integration and as an extension, social integration.
REWIP aims at achieving this goal by initiating and facilitating volunteering and mentoring opportunities for young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers who wish to work voluntarily in a local business for a limited amount of time, learn a new profession or further develop an already familiar one, as well as liaise meaningfully with a professional mentor who can guide them in their professional endeavours. REWIP draws and further advances existing methodologies of work integration, scouting for best practices and attending to its target groups’ needs and preferences.
REWIP’s partnership consists of a variety of skilful partners, such as the University of Piraeus, acting as the academic and pedagogical partner and the coordinator of the project; Stimmuli for Social Change, bringing expertise in social empowerment and mentoring training practices; Solidarity Now (partner of SIRIUS) offering intercultural and pre-employment guidance; Ethelon, the designer of the REWIP online platform for volunteering opportunities; NewBees, the inspiration behind the REWIP model of work integration; and CESIE, the well-experienced partner in Erasmus+ programmes, designing and maintaining the Open Educational Resources of REWIP. It is the collective effort of all these partners that is envisioned to bring fruitful results to this project and its beneficiaries.
