Duo for a job : seniors and young people with a migrant background
In Brussels, the Duo for a Job program helps young people with an immigrant background get out of unemployment. The principle ? Each young person is connected with a retiree who gives him access to his network, helps him prepare applications and job interviews, and shares his experience. Today, the help of a retired "mentor" doubles the chances of these young people entering the labor market in Belgium.
