Voluntary work as a step towards integration?

During this Refugee Academy meeting we look at the impact of voluntary work on for example network building, learning the Dutch language, mental health, self- development and access to the labour market. Therefore we will take into account the experiences of residents of AZC locations and the experiences of organizations being involved in promoting and organizing voluntary work. In addition, insights derived from recent research by Significant and VU will be shared.
