New guidebook promotes mentoring projects for young women in Europe

[Brussels, 20 December 2012] Last week the EWL spoke at the successful launch of the Guidebook for Mentoring Young Women in Europe during an event organised by the International Young Women’s Partnership (IYWP) to celebrate its one-year anniversary. More than 70 people attended the event featuring other guest speakers from women’s organisations including the European Federation of Mentoring for Girls, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the Danish Centre for Information on Gender (KVINFO), who also contributed to the guidebook.

This Guidebook, developed by Lena Kurz, Policy officer at the European Youth Forum, in cooperation with the International Young Women Partnership, with contributions from the European Women’s Lobby, the European Federation of Mentoring for Girls and Women, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, KVINFO, «dieReiter», Theresa Philippi and financial support from the European Youth Forum, is a free online source, a tool to be used to set up women mentoring projects or relationships.

In drawing upon established projects, programs and approaches, it gathers existing knowledge, puts it in relation and processes information in a user-friendly manner. Every aspect of setting up a mentoring project or relationship is chronological dealt with in a separate chapter, closing with a checklist outlining the core items to be considered in every step.

Ultimately the Guidebook shall contribute to the empowerment of young women in Europe.
