Talentscan and personal advice
Everybody is good at something. You have people that can make anything, while others have two left hands but brim with ideas. Interesting organisations or projects can always use talented volunteers. The handyman can pick up odd jobs while someone else can act as board member or PR assistant. If you are still unsure about your own talents, why not take our online talentscan.
You may also visit one of our Bemiddelingspunten Vrijwilligerswerk (Intermediary Centres for Volunteers). There are always people around to exchange ideas with.
Courses to help you develop your talents
We offer various courses and workshops in personal development. An overview of these can be found on the Talent Development-page. At the moment these are mainly language - and computer courses, but others will be added shortly. You can also develop yourself by taking a course at ROC Mondriaan or take up volunteering.
Special business training for women
For women who seek to set up a business there is the Bissmiss School (page link). The course covers all important aspects: from writing a business plan to acquisition to tax matters. But the Bissmiss School also focuses on your personal development. Essential (entrepreneurial) skills are discussed and your own individual talents and strong points will be incorporated as well. There will be plenty of room for your own input.
