Breinstein (www.breinstein.nl) is a Dutch employment agency which facilitates young professionals to jobs in the public and private sector. For these young professionals the team organizes 'Brain&Muscle' days during which the young talents attempt to crack 'wicked problems'. For three months they will be cracking the whip on finding ways for NewBees to expand and reach more people.
At the project kick off on November 11, Ninah, one of NewBees' first volunteers, explained to them why the project is important to her: ‘NewBees discovered me before I was getting lost. I feel empowered, because NewBees is working closely with refugees.’ She and Asad, another volunteer, helped the young professionals understand the problem they are working with.
StroomNederland (www.stroomnederland.nl) brought Breinstein and NewBees together and helps facilitate the sessions in Alkmaar.
