Foundation Knowledge Centre PRO WORK promotes the career development of people with a (significant) distance to the labor market, skilled workers and others who need coaching, training, and counseling in a wide variety of sectors and topics, national and international. PRO WORK operates in sectors like entrepreneurship as this SPEED-You-UP project as well as in IT, sustainability, environment, economy, health care and technology associated with sheltered employment, talent development of youngsters, unemployment, and generation gaps.
PRO WORK is one of the coordinators of a HUB in the Netherlands for NEET young people. First, the idea was to start a HUB in every organisation that was connected to the project, but this seemed to be not realistic as the coaches were not able to arrange all of this by themselves. The official location of the HUB therefor started in the youth centre location at the local sports club (De Westhoek), called the SOOS. Later we opted to also start a so-called HUB at our office when the progress of new young people and the trajectories of existing young people appeared to be decreasing. For that we now describe that we have two HUBS, in which the PRO WORK office is the most prominent HUB now. Within the HUBS we are working with different organisations connected to NEET young people in any way.
