On May 8th 2020 the INTEGRA programme Transnational Conference on Multidisciplinary Mentorship to support the entrepreneurship of children in care and young care leavers was to take place in Nicosia, Cyprus, hosted by the project coordinator, “Hope for Children” CRC Policy Center. The project partners from several Southern European countries (Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus), were to present the INTEGRA Mentoring and Integration Programme and the results regarding its implementation among professionals and the young care leavers in their own countries.
In line with the guidance from the World Health Organization and given the escalation of governmental measures everywhere in Europe against COVID-19, the level of uncertainty is such that prevents us of further planning. Therefore, we would like to announce the cancelation of the INTEGRA Transnational Conference on Multidisciplinary Mentorship to support the entrepreneurship of children in care and young care leavers to be held in Cyprus on May 8th.
Despite the restrictions to live public events, the project partners agree that it is really important to share the experiences gathered during the workshops, in which they have been applying the tools offered by the Mentoring Integration Program (MIP) as well as the Online Platform For Cooperation, the main products developed during the project, aimed at residential care professionals and other professionals who closely work with young people leaving care-systems to successfully support their social and professional integration.
Therefore, we would like to announce that, as an alternative, the INTEGRA partners will be hosting a webinar on the 4th of June 2020. The digital conference allows the audience to join and be able to follow the last step of the journey that started in May 2018. Further details about time and registration will shortly be published.
