We are a non-profit organisation that depends on the commitment of many incredible volunteers – people who truly make a difference.
Our participants need more than technical knowledge in order to achieve the goal of a successful integration in the labour market. That’s why our program includes coaching during the internship phase. Each participant is accompanied by one volunteer Job Coach.
For more information, check our factsheet.
Teachers in the classroom are supported by volunteer trainers (2+ half day commitment) to help answer questions from the student group and provide 1:1 support during exercises. If you are an IT professional, would like to support our participants solving IT challenges and like to work in a team, come join us. We are also open to suggestions if you would like to provide the class with an input of a specific IT theme.
Our next batch starts end of March with a new group of talented participants. We are celebrating our kick off on March 20, join us and meet our new participants and the community
