It also focuses on providing career guidance migrant youth, as well as improving youth workers’ and career advisors’ capacity to offer career advising to migrant youth.

The UpGrad_Me 2.0 Career Guidance Handbook is a supporting to for career advisors and youth workers who wish to work with young migrants and refugees and support their employability in Europe and local communities.

The career guidance handbook features a compilation of good practices and innovative methodologies to help practitioners working with young Migrants, Newcomers, Asylum seekers and Refugees (MNAR) to utilise gamification techniques to support them in their career orientation and consequently boost their employability and soft skills.
