In addition to our NewBees Traineeship, Wees Welcome Workshops, and the pilots of learning routes for municipalities, we are working on various projects. All to pursue an inclusive society.


MDT is part of the Social Service and prepares young newcomers, young refugees, for a place in our society. We match them with a traineeship at a local social organization, where their talent comes into its own.

During the traineeship, the participants attend a number of workshops, receive intensive guidance and meet people from different backgrounds in their area. Personal development, equality and talent are central. After the traineeship, MDT provides follow-up in the form of a nice certificate and guidance to the next step.

How I got talent for life is back!

The performance can be seen again in Dutch theaters starting January 2022.

In ‘How I got a Talent for life, theatre, music and dance come together in a grand performance, played by a cast of actors, musicians and dozens of new Dutch people with a refugee history. They take the audience along in the sometimes strange lives of the people who live and work in the asylum seekers’ center and get sometimes hopelessly entangled in the system. Before and after the performance, the audience is invited to continue exploring during ‘De Expeditie’, the in-depth program with art, film, debate, music, and more.

REWIP van Erasmus
+ Key Action

NewBees participates in project REWIP: ‘Refugee Empowerment and Work Integration Program’, an Erasmus + “Strategic Partnership for Youth” project. REWIP focuses on the integration of young refugees and increasing their employability.

REWIP also brings together youth organizations to develop and share effective methods to achieve this common goal together.

Together with partners from Greece and Italy, NewBees advises on creating a successful integration tool through volunteering for young refugees in Greece and Italy.

In addition to our national projects, we also develop local projects, such as the The NewBees Amsterdam Healthcare Traineeship.
