Educational mentorships for children and young people in Luxembourg

The TANDEM programme is a mentorship program for vulnerable children that helps them discover new passions and perspectives.

The TANDEM programme is a mentorship program for vulnerable children and teenagers aged 10-12 and 14-16 who are looking for more support in life and school (transition from primary to secondary school as well as from secondary school to a professional orientation).

During one calendar year, a child or teenager is supported by a godfather or a godmother. The partnership is supervised and followed closely by a team of professionals and is coordinated by UP_FOUNDATION.

By accompanying the child or teenager in different situations, the godfather or godmother introduces them to new passions and perspectives, allowing them to rebuild themselves and develop their self-confidence.

The programme was launched in spring 2022 in the Brill school in Esch-sur-Alzette.
