Match for brighter futures

help teenagers realise their dreams​

Develop yourself, make a difference and upgrade your CV!

Do you think using your knowledge and experience to help a student with fewer opportunities is important? Or were you that teenager who struggled with school, and now you want to help a young person yourself?

In the project Brighter Futures, you coach a high school student who has fewer opportunities than their peers for two hours a week. You help with homework, planning, and developing future plans. The other hour is used to prepare for the appointment and to let us know how your student is doing via the digital dashboard.

We are looking for students who:

  • Speak Dutch
  • have 2-3 hours per week to help a pupil
  • are available for at least half a year (February to July) or (September to December)
  • want to use their experience and knowledge to help a student.

This is what you get from us:

  • a chance to develop yourself alongside your studies and make a social contribution
  • four workshops, on topics such as coaching, motivation, and learning styles
  • Flexible working hours
  • Monthly volunteer allowance of €60
The recruitment for 2023-2024 has started. Apply now and secure your spot!

frequently asked questions

Where does the homework assistance take place?
Tutoring takes place at the student’s school. This you agree with the student and the school. In some cases, you can choose to meet outside school. A public place is desirable.

What about the volunteer fee?
A volunteer allowance is paid at the end of each month. The volunteer allowance per hour depends on your age.

What if I’m not able to give 3 hours of guidance in that week?
Generally speaking, the 3 hours in the week is desired. Sometimes this is not convenient for you and/or the student. Here you make clear agreements together. Furthermore, you can always suggest that you call the student once and/or that the student can approach you if he/she has a problem.

Can I also participate in MFBF for a few months?
Preferably you are available until the end of this academic year. This ensures that you can build a better relationship with your student. Are you interested in the project but available for a shorter period? Mention this in your application. Then this will be discussed during the introductory meeting.

Do I need to speak Dutch?
Yes, your level of Dutch needs to be good in order to coach a Dutch high school student properly..
