The New Verbinders

Develop your talents and make an impact in Amsterdam, Utrecht or Rotterdam!

The project

Do you want to make a difference by committed to a diverse and inclusive city? Sign up now as a New Connector!

De Nieuwe Verbinders is a project of Diversion in which you, together with 50 other young people between 17 and 27 from Amsterdam in 30 weeks, are trained to be the connector of tomorrow.

We believe in an open city, one in which everyone dares to speak out; that you really disagree and still keep talking. In this way we build bridges between people and worlds. Are you building along?

The program

From September 2019 to April 2020 we offer you the opportunity to discover your talents in 3 hours a week and apply them immediately. You start by following inspiring training courses and master classes. Learn, for example, how to better present yourself, how to deal with conflicting world views and discover what makes you a role model.

Everything you learn, you put into practice. In secondary schools, for example, you engage in a difficult conversation about discrimination, exclusion and prejudice. As a main prize you will work for a social organization. There you work on an assignment with which you make an immediate impact: a boost for your CV and the city. Sounds good right?

You as a New Connector:

· Is open and willing to question your own and other people's worldview

· Confronts in a positive way and facilitates the conversation

· Knows how to build bridges between people and worldviews

· Promotes the common values of democracy

What's in it for you?

Are you ready to

· Turn your city upside down?

· Boost your future?

· Get to know dozens of inspiring people and organizations?

Then I would definitely join De Nieuwe Verbinders!

In addition to the unforgettable experience that you will gain, there is of course something in return. At the end of the process you will receive a certificate and professional photo that you can use for your LinkedIn and resume. You will also receive a reimbursement!

Getting there
About De Nieuwe Verbinders
Three-quarters of the Dutch feel that conflicts between groups on social issues are widening. The De Nieuwe Verbinders project offers optimistic and constructive feedback.

In the project we train 165 young people from 17 to 27 years old from all walks of life with different backgrounds from Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht to become the connectors of tomorrow in 30 weeks. They use the knowledge and experiences that they gain in this to tackle discrimination and exclusion and to build bridges between people and worldviews. First the participants in high school classes break open the conversation about discrimination, exclusion and prejudice. Then the participants start working in an organization in their city with a pressing question on the theme and in this way make a real impact on the city. The voluntary process will start in September 2019. Participants receive a super nice (work) experience, build their CV and receive a certificate + fee at the end.
