JINC fights for a society in which your past doesn’t determine your future. That’s why JINC helps young people aged 8-16 who are growing up in an environment with high unemployment and few role models to get a good start in the job market. The JINC programme introduces them to all kinds of jobs, helps them to find out which work suits their talents and teaches them how to apply for a job. Thanks to JINC, more than 47,000 primary and secondary school pupils are given the opportunity to grow each year.
Since the beginning of this year, VolkerWessels Telecom has been contributing financially to JINC’s projects and allowing employees to volunteer at the organisation as trainers or coaches. And we’re getting something valuable in return: the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and the opportunity to invest in our company. By doing this, we’re strengthening our bond with society and offering employees an inspiring experience.
Marc Redegeld, HR Director at VolkerWessels Telecom:
“JINC's approach is practical and purposeful, which suits our company perfectly. They help pupils get a realistic idea of what’s available on the labour market and help them grow on a personal level. We’re proud to be able to contribute to this.”
