stage educatie


The internship or minor focuses on your learning objectives and together we look at how we best can apply your qualities in practice. You are supervised by an internship supervisor from Think Volunteer, with whom you have coaching during your internship.
You may encounter certain things during an internship abroad. Examples of this are a culture shock, different norms and values and wrong expectations. Thinking and reflecting are central to supervision. Contributed cases are made transparent and your personal development is stimulated. At the end of the internship period, we will look back and evaluate with you and the project. Think Volunteer will stay in contact with your school if necessary, to ensure that the internship position meets the requirements set by the Dutch studies.

Minor guidance

From some studies it is not always clear what a minor entails and what the possibilities are. A minor can be a very nice educational experience that matches your development and wishes as a person. Our team is specialised in free minors. Not only because we have done a minor ourselves in Indonesia, but also because we have experience in supervising this. You get a minor example and we help you set up a plan. You receive tips & tricks and we plan a total of three sessions that can help you to put together your free minor as well as possible.
