Sliema, Malta – February 2024 – Friends of Don Bosco in Malta organised a four-day course focusing on mentoring disadvantaged young people. The Erasmus+ programme, funded by the European Union, is in fact training several youth workers to help vulnerable young people better discover their potential and achieve specific life goals, thanks to the support of a tutor. The course was attended by 28 youth workers from Spain, Malta, Slovakia, the Netherlands, Belgium and Aruba, including numerous Friends of Don Bosco and Past Pupils who already work with young people in their volunteer activities. The course addressed several issues related to the role and responsibility of a tutor, also highlighting the Salesian approach to non-formal education. The sessions were held by a team of professionals engaged in working with disadvantaged young people and with mentoring experience, including Louis Debono, Ariana Abela, Audrey Agius, Clive Bonnici and Bryan Magro, President of the World Confederation of Past Pupils.
