How You Can Make A Difference
We are here for the Young & Bold. They are the future leaders that want to impact our community in a positive way. They care about social impact issues and believe solving them is a priority. Our aim is to enable young people to create their ecosystem of partners aiming at making their community a better place.
Young & Bold’s mission is driven by a small group of people. Currently, we are running two programs: 1) Design Thinking Workshops for refugees; 2) Bold Brigade. Next to that, our social media plays an important role in sharing content that inspires young people to do good.
For the Design Thinking Workshop, Young & Bold provides sessions in reception centers for refugees. For this project, we partner with Nyenrode Business University, in which the institution has accredited the Design Thinking certification. We also partner with NGOs for access to the affected communities. In 2023, we aim to advance the development and implementation of this project.
The Bold Brigade is a pool of young change makers. They can be mobilized when a need for help is identified. The Brigaders all have an area of expertise, and can be called in for short-term and specific assignments. They are all available on a voluntary basis. In 2023, we aim to strengthen the Bold Brigade by engaging them in projects and connecting on a regular basis.
