Foreningsmentor International

ForeningsMentor International is a collaboration between Aarhus municipality, Red Barnet (Save the Children) and the international schools in Aarhus: Aarhus Academy for Global Education, N. Kochs Skole International Department and the reception classes at Læssøesgades Skole.

At ForeningsMentor International we help children and adolescents from 6 to 17 years of age in finding the right club or association. We offer two options of collaboration:

We can show you the way

We can direct you and your child to the right club or association depending on what peaks your child’s interest - may it be football, swimming, music or something completely different. We can help you translate the association webpage, tell you how to get in contact with the association, and how to become a member - and if you have any questions on practical issues or unwritten customs when joining a Danish association, we’ll help you answer those too.

Get a more personal guidance

If you and your child need more help than directions in finding the right association, it is possible for your child to get a mentor. The mentor is a volunteer who will meet with you and your child, help you find the right activity and association, and prepare the association for a new member. Should you find it helpful, he or she may accompany you and your child to the activity the first couple of times until you feel comfortable going on your own.
