Young immigrants’ opportunities for success in school and at work

The aim of the project was to find and to pilot a new range of scalable solutions, to improve equality and inclusivity for young people with immigrant backgrounds in Helsinki. The project studied young immigrants’ starting points and motives for education, employment and social environment. The results so far are solutions ready for piloting, where young people help each other.
