Team 12 on a working visit to ground project PVD Grondwerken

PVD Grondwerken, one of the newest social partners of Samen RKC, gave Project Team 12 a unique ‘look behind the scenes’ during a working visit. The groundwork specialist from Nieuwkuijk had expressed its desire to get involved in society in the Langstraat region, and a link with Project Team 12 was quickly established!

The Team 12 youngsters were allowed to take a look at a groundwork project at the Mandemakers Stadium. During the working visit, owner Piet van Dijk took the Team 12 youngsters through the history of his company, the various groundwork activities they carry out and the employee skills required. He encouraged the youngsters with the fact that a career switch is easily made, even at a later age.

Getting to work

After the introduction, it was time to roll up their sleeves. Pete took the youngsters to ground repair work they were doing at the stadium. After an explanation, the youngsters were allowed to get to work themselves, of course under the guidance of Piet and the other work coaches. In the end, they finished the job together.

About Team 12

Project Team 12 is a project in which young people with a distance to the labour market or young people who are searching for which direction they want to take are welcome at RKC Waalwijk to gain work experience. Together, they form Team 12 and work on their personal development within the appealing working environment of RKC Waalwijk. Learning employee skills and social skills is central to this. They get the chance to discover their talents, be meaningful, meet new people and make choices for the future. There is also a focus on structure and rhythm in the day. The young people receive appropriate support and guidance from a work coach.

It was an instructive and active work visit for the participants, during which they worked hard for a nice result. A great form of local social cooperation!
