Call for mentees to participate in IRTS Mentoring Programme

Posted June 20, 2020

Are you working with refugee inclusion through sport – or plan to work in this field – and need some help to get started or make a bigger impact? Then we invite you to apply to be part of ISCA’s brand new Integration of Refugees Through Sport (IRTS) Mentoring Programme.

The IRTS Mentoring Programme – as part of the new IRTS Networking Platform – connects individuals and organisations from the integration of refugees through sport field through two rounds of 12-month mentorships. The objective of the mentoring is to bring together less and more experienced individuals from the field to build an international network and build the capacity of the whole sector.

It will be carried out in two rounds of 12 pairs:

  • September 2020 - October 2021
  • October 2021 - November 2022

For the first round, we are looking for 12 motivated mentees to be matched with respective experts from the field.

During the 12-month mentoring, the mentorship pairs will be engaged through an online platform and they have two chances to meet face-to-face (travel and accommodation costs covered). The mentoring pairs will be offered relevant resources throughout the programme – both relating to the IRTS field and tips/advice related to mentoring.
