Zij aan Zij aan Zet

At the beginning of November, BOB Helpt started the women’s project ‘Zij aan Zij aan Zet’ on de Oostelijke Eilanden. The project is especially for women (with a distance to the labor market), who are ready for change and want to take the next step in their lives. The personal development of the women is central for 10 weeks. We meet 3 half days a week. In the weeks that you follow our activities, it will become clear what the next appropriate step is.

As we travel with you, we discover what your unique talents are. You will receive training to become stronger and learn how and where to look for work. We also visit companies.

After we complete this, BOB Helps will also support you with the next step. For example, volunteer work, paid work or apprenticeship/training. We work closely with the Z3 Practice, the ZONE3 Orientation Center, WPI and companies in Oostenburg and the surrounding area.
