The MentorMigration project had a succesful partner meeting in Berlin (Jan 23-25).
This project has eight partner groups, six of these recruited from the LM network. New partners are from Austria (Linz) an Germany (Freiburg). Malmo University is coordinating the project which is about the use of student teachers as mentors for migrant kids in Europe.
Work has been gong very well with new mentor programmes established in all the partner groups.
MentorMigration will present work done Stavanger, Linz, Freiburg, and Zug during the LM-conference in Romania in June this year. During the 2007 LM-conference in Sofia the first started mentor groups in Malmo, Berlin, and Ljubljana were presented.
