Introduction of youth mentoring programme
As part of its role in helping young people to enter the world of work, the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, through the Employment Office, is introducing a youth mentoring programme, designed to increase support for young Monegasques and Monaco residents as they search for a job.
The idea is to provide additional assistance to young people to help them learn about the world of business, and about the various techniques used in job hunting.
Youth mentoring will involve pairing up a young person with a professional working in the field in which the mentee would like to work. The professional, who will become the young person’s mentor, will thus be able to offer their mentee specific, tailored advice and support them in their efforts.
Depending on the individuals involved, the mentoring relationship will offer a clear insight into the world of work and the requirements of businesses, the opportunities and conditions in the employment market, tools and techniques for job hunting, interview preparation, and also provide ideas about career prospects and career planning.
This new form of intensive support, which is being led and managed by the Employment Office, will be offered in addition to the individual monitoring already provided by the Youth Employment Unit and the Vocational Integration Unit for Monegasque Nationals and Denizens of Monaco, as well as the Executive Unit of the Committee for Graduate Employment.
