Explanation about volunteering
Refugees who apply for benefits fall under the Participation Act and may receive a reintegration process. Participation is of course more than work. And for many refugees, paid work will certainly not be feasible in the beginning, for example because of the language gap or because of diplomas that are not recognized. It is important not to let them stand aside but to invest in their social participation. Volunteering offers countless opportunities for this. Today, Marit Hofman, coordinator of Steunpunt volunteer work from Nunspeet, came to visit to explain our course participants who participate in WEL Education at the WEL (Work and Learn) trajectory. Within the WEL trajectory, WES Education combines MBO training with guidance to a learning workplace and / or paid work. WES Education works closely with various partners for this purpose.
