Summary

Do you like doing fun things, having fun and would you like to really help a local resident who needs an extra push? Come to Prisma

Detailed description

What are you going to do?

You become a coach of a local resident with a mild intellectual disability. On the outside you often do not see that they have a disability. Our participants live independently in Noord and have few social contacts or fun things to do in their (free) time. And they want to change that! Conviviality and working towards a goal are central to the contact. For example, you can help someone make contact with new people, find a fun activity in the area and discover where someone's interests and talents lie. You go on an adventure together in the neighborhood and can make a world of difference in someone's life! At Prisma we focus on possibilities & talents. you can get started in all city districts of Amsterdam.

Who are we looking for?

  • You are patient and give someone the space to try & learn for themselves
  • You have a positive and enthusiastic attitude
  • You take initiative easily and are enterprising
  • You look at someone's possibilities
  • You are available on average 2.5 hours per week for a period of 6 to 9 months


What do we offer you?

  • Special contact with special people
  • Travel and expense allowance
  • Fun training in the field of the target group and coaching
  • if there is enough interest, special intervision for you and your colleagues
  • Professional guidance and always someone to fall back on with your questions


What makes this work worthwhile?

Thanks to you, someone goes out more / easier and someone's self-confidence is increased. With your time and attention you make a world of difference in someone's life and you make an important contribution to combating loneliness.
