open.heart – Mentorships for unaccompained minor refugees

open.heart aims to empower young refugees by allocating to each minor a volunteer mentor to support therm in their daily life. Ongoing education for mentors are provided too. The main objective of the project is to enable the integration and social inclusion of young refugees living in Salzburg by supporting and empowering them in challenges they are facing as youths and refugees likewise. As a result of such personal relationships, volunteers state to feel responsible to speak up against hate speech in a more and more hostile social and governmental environment towards migrants in Austria.
