Szilvia Simon of the European Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring adds that, even once in-person programming has resumed to its former capacity, virtual programming will continue to open doors for international connections. “Mentoring will be offered online, also in a transnational way. Online events of connectivity and networking can offer new ways to create meaningful relationships, even across borders. This way, we offer young people a chance to keep to their ambitions and to find inspiration.”
