WHAT WE DO
NewBees prepares newcomers, refugees, for a job: at a place in our society. Because we believe in an inclusive society. A society where equality is key. And where everyone gets the chance to use talent, wherever you come from.
In 2016, after a visit to Lesvos in 2015, we started NewBees. With the aim of preparing newbies for a place in our society through traineeships. We now use our newbie-expertise for:
Although refugee, status holder and fortune seeker are commonly used terms, we prefer newbie. In the English dictionary it is loosely translated "slang for a beginner or newcomer, or someone inexperienced in a profession or activity". We have all have been new somewhere.
With our approach, services and workshops we work towards an inclusive Netherlands.
And our approach works. We make a proven impact. For newcomers, municipalities, companies and society as a whole. Both financially and on a welfare level. Read more about it on our Impact page.
