Born in 2016 as an experimentation within the FAMI project "Àncora: Experimental community project to support the autonomy of holders of international protection", the Tutor for integration is a private subject - collective or individual who "adopts" a path of social integration, making available its relational resources and / or professional to offer an emotional / relational but also practical support to the refugee. There are no constraints of hourly availability, each tutor manages the relationship on the basis of their own possibilities. Read more and discover how to become a tutor.
