Idea in brief

IT Guide offers evening or holiday work opportunities to unaccompanied and newly arrived minors that are recruited to become IT guides, educating seniors in IT. The tasks assigned could include general help with internet and other mobile services. Simultaneously, the youth learn Swedish, gain work experience and develop their strengths.

Problem

Unaccompanied youth face significantly higher thresholds when entering the Swedish labor market compared to established Swedes. There is a need for local initiatives that challenge these structures within the Swedish labor market and also provide the necessary opportunities for these young people to acquire the competences needed for further employment.

Solution

IT Guide offers a 30-hour training educating the unaccompanied youth to become an IT guide. Through IT Guide the youth gain work experience, develop their Swedish language skills and gain knowledge about the Swedish society by interacting with the seniors. These interactions lead to greater understanding and acceptance of different cultures and backgrounds resulting in a more open and inclusive Sweden.
