Summary

We teach children and adults with disabilities to travel independently. Think of: going to school, to the gym, to an internship, etc.

Detailed description


Where will you work?

MEE Foundation is an organization that is committed to people with disabilities (intellectual disability, autism, Non Congenital Brain Injury and physical disability).

MEE Op Weg is a training course from the age of 12 for people with disabilities who want to learn to travel independently by public transport or bicycle. MEE Op Weg's vision is that people with disabilities should be able to participate in society as independently as possible. Part of that is, of course, independent travel.


Who are you / what are we looking for?

Someone who likes to tackle and takes initiative. The trainer is responsible, in consultation with parents/partner, for planning the training sessions and for reporting the hours. It is nice if the trainer already has experience with the target group. It is important to be able to make a good connection with the person for whom the training is for. Emphasizing the things that are going well is very important.

 

Period and working hours

A training lasts a maximum of 24 hours (average 8 training sessions, introduction, advice, reports).

If you help a child who goes to school, the working hours will mainly be in the morning (before school) and after school.

If you help an adult travel independently, the working hours are flexible.

About MEE op Weg

A project for anyone from the age of 12 with a disability who wants to learn to travel independently. Many people with disabilities travel from a young age with 'special' transport to school, leisure activities or other facilities. Traveling by 'the van' or by taxi has become a matter of course. On the one hand, this special transport ensures that people get to where they need to be. On the other hand, people in this way remain dependent on the special transport or others. While they may be able to learn to travel independently.

Independent travel is important
It is our mission to ensure that people with disabilities can participate in our society. Being able to travel independently is important. It gives more freedom and therefore also possibilities for spontaneous actions. Like deciding in the evening to go to the movies with your friends. MEE wants to think in terms of opportunities and possibilities, instead of limitations. With the creative solutions and support of MEE op Weg, the participants achieve a valuable result.
