Employees find it increasingly important to carry out voluntary work through their employer. For this reason, social activities are organized by Young Cefetra* to contribute to society and the city of Rotterdam.
After the very successful social project in 2017 - with 47 volunteers, 16 evenings of providing homework support to children with a language deficiency in Delfshaven - this year it was decided to start a social project again. The coming year we will have a different target group, but the same concept.
In the coming months we will start the cooperation with the Evening School. The Evening School is an educational institution in Rotterdam for people who can not go to other institutions for adult education. We will provide support in small groups for the various courses that are given at the Evening School.
In addition, we will take a group of elderly people from Rotterdam for a 'happiness walk'. Going out together, chatting and looking for fun things makes for a welcome change for elderly people who live in residential care centers. They do not often go outside, because one volunteer is required per person to leave the house. The more people sign up as supervisors, the more residents can participate in the happiness walk.
Cefetra encourages its employees to volunteer. Voluntary work is fun and educational. A nice first step in this is to participate in a social team activity.
Young Cefetra is for employees up to thirty years old and organizes activities for employees within Cefetra. We schedule a learning activity twice a year and a fun activity twice a year. In addition, we organize Friday afternoon drinks and a Social Project for all employees of Cefetra to contribute to society and the city of Rotterdam.
