SummaryWake up your mind! organizes a Culture Festival to remove misunderstandings and prejudices about different cultures. Do you help with the organization?
Detailed description

Job description

Wake up your mind! has started in Arnhem and Enschede. The groups of young people have come up with projects themselves and are now working on implementation. For this we are looking for enthusiastic young people between 18 and 28 to participate in these great projects.

The group consists of young people with a flight background and young people with a Dutch background. You get the chance to create your own project together. This requires creative input and entrepreneurship. If you do not know enough about this yet, no problem because during the course you will be guided by a young and professional team. Together you will come up with the project and make a plan of action. The next step is the implementation of your projects.

In Arnhem, a lot of work is being done to organize a culture festival. A festival where prejudices and misunderstandings about different cultures disappear through (cultural) stands, theater, activities and the most connecting factors: music, dance and food.

Would you like to help with this? Then sign up quickly!

How much time does it cost you?

For each project it costs you about half a day per week. If you want to spend more time on it, you can of course always do that. We understand that you have more time one week than the next. Naturally, we also take exam and exam periods into account.

It will be a super beautiful experience and you will receive from us:

  • A certificate based on your development
  • Expansion on your network
  • Gaining work experience in a social organization
  • Expert guidance by a professional
  • Participation in training courses
  • A pleasant and safe environment
  • Travel or expense allowance

During Wake up your mind! get to know ...

  • Different cultures and backgrounds through collaboration with other young people
  • How to organize
  • Project work
  • Collaborate
  • Usefulness and necessity of good monitoring and evaluation
  • Pitch
  • Self-development
