Punt de Referència was a pioneer 25 years ago, offering accompaniment through mentoring, to recently emancipated young people. This long experience has allowed our model to be proven successful and has encouraged us to share our knowledge. Therefore, in 2012, we promoted the Social Mentoring Coordinator, the organization that works online with other entities to improve the quality of mentoring in providing accompaniment to vulnerable groups. In this way we support the implementation of new projects.
Punt de Referència was also part of the European Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring (ECEB), as well as the European Learning Network of Mentoring Programs for Migrants (2016-2019).

TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONALS IN EMOTIONAL ACCOMPANYING
Another model of intervention in which we serve as a reference is that of emotional support from a socio-educational perspective: How to be at the side of vulnerable people and offer them the emotional support they need? This training helps to address one of the challenges faced by professionals from the world of social work. At the same time it is one of the shortcomings that the emancipated youth have frequently found in the educators accompanying them.
