Kairos Europe, established in 2011, is an organisation dedicated to promoting the development of programmes aimed at increasing intercultural exchanges between European countries, promoting equality and social inclusion.
Our mission is to provide quality training opportunities for youths and adults in order to improve their knowledge and skills and enhance their career prospects.
Our organisation has been working since its foundation with migrants. As part of our activities, we have organised several activities for these groups, such as free English and IT courses, or sessions about how to develop interpersonal skills to live in modern societies. We have dealt with categories who feel themselves excluded from mainstream society and have tried to help them build up on their skills and improve their career prospects.
We have been promoting courses on integration, social skills for people dealing with multi-cultural groups, and therefore we have experience in the areas relevant to this application but we are constantly looking to improve our curricula, learn from other organisations working in the field, and keep up to date with the changes that take place on a regular basis, from a political and social point of view.
In addition, Kairos Europe has been providing several opportunities for the target group at local level, such as the provision of entrepreneurship courses for migrants and refugees who would like to start their businesses.
Also, we’ve been involved in several projects for migrants and refugees, although with different focus:
– Developing curricula for teaching in classes with high percentage of minorities
– Research on migration policies across EU countries and Sharing of Best practices in the field.
– Organising courses to improve intercultural competences of participants
– Designing bespoke courses to teach migrants and refugees.
