Guidance workshops

Young refugees are often unaware of opportunities for scholarships and struggle to meet the demands of the applications.

We estimate that less than 20% of scholarship applications are eligible for review.

Our workshops, co-designed with youth and their community are delivered with local organisations in Jordan and Lebanon. Mosaik trains teachers at local organisations to deliver online learning materials, adapting workshops to their local context and in June 2019, 80 local and refugee youth were enrolled in the workshop series taking place across four locations.

“The reason that I was interested in the guidance workshops is because I was confused. I wanted psychology but I wanted to make sure whether it would fit me or not… The person who finds his/her passion can leave a good mark.”
Roula – Student from Syria

The workshops help refugees find the university pathways best suited to them, set goals, and work on achieving them.

“The program introduced me to so many scholarships I did not know about. It gave me an understanding of university scholarships and their requirements and the different kinds of education. Now I can plan for applying to university.”
