Refugee Start Force - Central (Amsterdam)

Refugee Start Force aims to give refug...ees a shortcut into the Dutch society. Through this online community we match refugees with local professionals and companies in the region based on skill sets and expertises.

We aim to offer a bespoke service tailored around the needs of individual refugees. The aim of the Refugee Start Force is to equip refugees with the contacts and knowledge to realise their professional ambitions.

Refugee Start Force has formulated a number of concrete objectives which we want to facilitate via our platform:

1. enable refugees to integrate more quickly into the Dutch society and labour market.

2. gain insight into qualifications and talents of refugees at an early stage.

3. create relevant professional networks between Dutch citizens and refugees at an early stage

4. gain insight into possibilities for volunteering, internship opportunities and other development opportunities for refugees at companies.

5. stimulate entrepreneurship.

6. examine possibilities for more 'experimental space' within the current legislation.
