K!X Works

Refugees or new residents have to be able to participate quickly in the Netherlands. A job or education are important requirements to be able to fully participate in society. K!X Works helps young refugees and new residents to find their way to education, an internship or a job.

How does it work?

The young refugees and new residents:

  • learn more about the educational system in the Netherlands, and also about the employment agencies:
  • they will improve their (employee’s)skills by training;
  • they will learn more about the Dutch labour market, by visiting employers and companies, but also by guest lecturers;
  • they build up a network;
  • and they will reinforce their professional orientation and education choice.

Who is participating?

The new residents and refugees with a residence permit in the age between 13 and 23 years old.

What do these youngsters do at K!X Works?

The K!X Works participants undertake all kinds of activities. They will visit companies and schools. They will work at their communication, presentation and networking skills. The participants will be intensively guided and trained for a year by Movisie and volunteers who were refugees themselves. They will get coaching by employees and employers so that they increase and make use of their network. After a year they will get a certificate for participating in the K!X Works project with all the skills they have accomplished.
