Most human beings experience migration, whether as first, second, third or fourth generation of migrants. Currently, the world is facing higher number of forcibly displaced persons on the record, since the World War II. It is crucial to involve both migrants and host communities in the policy making to ensure an inclusive decision-making procedure.

In this sense, a learning course curriculum targeting Integration Services Professionals and Volunteers with a step-by-step process to systematically promote newly arrived migrants’ integration through the Buddy System is needed. The partnership of M4M project, provides an answer to migrants' needs towards a better inclusion in the host country, to make sure newly-arrived migrants do not feel alone and have a person who they can rely on to explain, guide, support and help them throughout the inclusion process. Therefore, the partnership of M4M project designed a course curriculum to improve the welcoming process and reinforce the exercise of rights of migrants: The Buddy System - Mentoring Training.
