JUMP INTO YOUR FUTURE
The UP Challenge was a 9-weeks program for refugees in Friesland, that happened in September and November, 2018. In teams, the refugees solved challenges submitted by companies and, by doing so, were able to learn more about the Frisian (business) culture, discover their unique skills, and develop their self-esteem and proactivity.
In early 2018, UP was selected by the Social Challenges Innovation Platform – an initiative run by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme – to receive funding and mentoring to be developed.
UP in short
The UP elements
From September to November 2018 we ran the UP program in Friesland, Netherlands. There, UP is part of the CREATE YOUR FUTURE Initiative.
Create Your Future became the link for refugees towards citizenship and integration into the job market. It offered different opportunities for economic integration such as mentoring, study and job shadowing, and a learning program (UP).
