Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2018
    This description of Frédéric Simonart's work was prepared when Frédéric Simonart was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
    DUO for a JOB is redesigning the traditional structures of mentoring, placing successful Belgian retirees as formal coaches for non-European unemployed youths entering the job market. In uniting these two populations, they are unlocking the social and cultural capital largely held by Belgian populations and fostering empathy between the local communities and people on the move.
