Peer Train

Strengthening Capacities to Support Active Ageing in the Conditions of the 21st Century - Peer Mentoring Program for People 50+

Peer-Train tackles the necessity to promote active ageing and lifelong learning through easy to access peer-mentoring for people 50+. Additionally, peer-mentoring also can serve so people can be inspired by others who experiences similar life situations, and have displayed a good coping strategy or even have professional experience in a particular subject. Through participation in the Peer Mentor Training developed in this project, peer-mentors enhance their skills and become better able to transfer their experiences in a way that is suitable for people 50+.
