IMC Weekend School is a supplementary school for children (aged 10-14) in underprivileged neighborhoods, often of immigrant backgrounds, in the larger cities of the Netherlands. Through a three-year course, professionals (volunteers) introduce students to a wide range of topics, including journalism, medicine, law, entrepreneurship and the arts. The curriculum also includes training in presentation, research, debate and conflict resolution. It is an education focused on developing an all-rounded character. Research shows that IMC Weekend School alumni have better professional prospects, are more confident, and feel more connecter with society than control groups.
Each of GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners is required to send quarterly donor reports detailing the impact of their work.
