The Robins

looking for our superhero

Unemployed people in Rotterdam obligatory participate in the 'Werk loont'project which activates them to find a job the first three months. Those who don't succeed end up 'in a box' of unemployed and often inactive, non-participating, citizens living on welfare.

To activate this group and engage them in (voluntary) work the idea is to select people from this group with the right capacities and train them to become a 'participation-coach' in the rol of trainer / inspirator / activator to involve many unemployed into (voluntary) work.

The toolkit is a suitcase filled with tools to make the unemployed the superheroes in this story. The toolkit contains a set of motivational skills, relevant skills and network skills. They will take this suitcase and save the other unemployed from 'the box'.
