MOMIE Mentoring for employment


Models of Mentoring for Inclusion and Employment



The MOMIE Project was designed to test a particular form of intervention, called peer mentoring, with different groups of disadvantaged people with different social problems, and who face difficulties in accessing the labor market, social exclusion and solitude.



  • To explore whether peer mentoring is as or more effective than non-peer mentoring;
  • To establish common evidence in the different groups, enabling the development of a mentoring model adapted to the reality of each country and to the problematic;
  • To provide innovative responses to the problem of social inclusion of disadvantaged people regarding access to the labor market;
  • To analyze and advise active employment and social inclusion policies, as it will provide a comprehensive review of the evidence of the impact of mentoring interventions over a wide range of areas;
  • To promote the social inclusion of disadvantaged groups in terms of the labor market.

  • A train the trainer mentoring programme and materials;
  • A social experimentation evaluation system (evaluation and monitoring structure and materials for mentors recruitment and training);
  • Final impact analysis report;
  • Dissemination events for stakeholders;
