Sprint is a project that originated from the plan of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport for the reintroduction of social service. The aim of this is to increase the social involvement of young people through voluntary work. Money has been made available from the ministry to run a number of pilots. Studenten voor Morgen participated in the pilot of NJR & CNV young people in 2019/2020, together with CHOICE, JKB and IFMSA-NL. The pilot is called Sprint, and is a kind of talent traineeship. In 2020/2021, Studenten voor Morgen will again participate in Sprint as a social internship organization. Also this year there is a team of eight enthusiastic young people who participate in various projects within Studenten voor Morgen.
How does it work?
It consists of several parts. The participating youngsters (participants aged 16-24) fulfill a two-month volunteer position (specially developed for this traineeship) at two of the participating youth organizations. After two months, the participant therefore changes position and organization. In addition, the participants follow a masterclass or training every month, which is in line with the learning objectives and volunteer functions (such as time management, personal branding, etc.). The participants will also visit a total of four different social institutions and institutions, to come into contact with new worlds and to discover how these institutions influence our society. Finally, each participant gets to work with personal challenges and ambitions.
