The aim of the collection is to provide useful ideas, tools and methodologies for professionals in the sector and to provide a starting point for project partners in the development of the curriculum for Peer Mentor and Job Coach for young people with disabilities.
Jump to Job partners have selected 10 good practices among those collected, the ones that suited most the aim of the project.
The Good Practices collection is available here.
